CUAHSI HIS Challenges Publishing data requires access to or setting up a HydroServer Accessing data requires HydroDesktop Generally limited to time series at a point Desktop Catalog Server

A digital divide Researchers Experimentalists Modelers Big Data and HPC #!/bin/bash vi chmod #PBS -l nodes 4:ppn 8 grep awk mpiexec How can we best structure data and computer models to enable the use of high-performance and data-intensive computing by discipline scientists coming to this problem without extensive computational knowledge and algorithmic experience? Gateways, Web Interfaces, CyberGIS

Can sharing data and models be as easy as sharing photos on Facebook or videos on YouTube?

Can finding data and models be as easy as shopping on Amazon? Possible Filters Available Formats Items Recommendations Prices (perhaps usage)

Cloud Computing Applications Models Storage Computation Services Wikipedia: Cloud computing is the use of computing resources (hardware and software) that are delivered as a service over a network (typically the Internet) Google, Amazon, Microsoft, Apple, DropBox XSEDE, Condor, BOINC

HydroShare is a web based collaborative system to support analysis, modeling and data publication Collaboration Analysis Observers and instruments Data Models Publication, Archival, Curation

http://beta.hydroshare.org Currently in beta testing

HydroShare Functionality to be Developed 1. A new, web-based system for advancing model and data sharing 2. Sharing features to HydroDesktop 3. Access more types of hydrologic data using standards compliant data formats and interfaces 4. Enhance catalog functionality that broadens discovery functionality to different data types 5. New model sharing and discovery functionality 6. Facilitate and ease access to use of high performance computing 7. New social media and collaboration functionality 8. Links to other data and modeling systems


Support additional types of data Resource Types Time Series Geographic feature set Other Referenced HIS time series Geographic Raster Multidimensional Space Time dataset River geometry Sample based observations (ODM2 and CZO) Documents Tabular objects HydroDesktop Project package Scripts Models Model Components Referenced data sets from other (non HIS sources). Tools Uploaders to facilitate loading of resources Viewers to visualize the resource Exporters to download the resource Best practice tools for hydrologic data preprocessing and analysis Requires a Resource Data Model Documented resource content specification that dictates how the resource is stored in HydroShare

Imagine the Possibilities 3. 1. Discover Observe and 2. Analyze/Model Publish and Catalog (in Desktop or Cloud) Collaboration 3 Observers and instruments 1 HydroServer Data (ODM) Analysis Models 2 HydroShare to support integrated collaborative analysis, modeling and data publication Publication, Archival, Curation

HydroShare Modeling Flow Time y t x Data: Links toreasoning national and global data setsinteroperability of essential Preconfigured Standards Tools Automated forpreprocess to visualization for information models and and to and configure couple analysis exchange modeling models inputs for systems based (TauDEM asonservices terrestrial variables (e.g.and NASA NEX, HydroTerre) CyberGIS)context, (CI-WATER) (OpenMI, purpose, CSDMS BMI) data resources (Aaron Byrd)

A specific example Big snow year Will my city flood? Click to delineate watershed (model domain) Generate model package from Essential Terrestrial Variables Generate suite of input scenarios Execute model and view results P Time Flow Time

But there is more What if I could express my decision needs to the system and have it reason and deduce which models need to run, then configure and run them based on the inputs available, precision needs and resources and time available.

Resource Repository Centric Paradigm for Modeling and Analysis Models Visualization Tools Analysis Tools Resource Repository Data Loaders Data Discovery Tools Enable multiple models to use common “best practice” tools

E.g. SWATShare A web based tool for publishing, sharing, and accessing Soil Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) www.water-hub.org/swat-tool

Model pre and post processing workflow Model Models Visualization Tools Analysis Tools Input Files Output Files PreProcessing Post Processing Resource Repository Data Loaders Data Discovery Tools Resource Repository Each model interacts with information in the common data store The modeler does not need to be concerned with and can take advantage of standardized analysis, visualization loading and discovery tools

Architecture and Development

Drupal – Content Management System Extensible Open Source Content Management Framework for Publication written in PHP – Over 14,000 user contributed modules Themed and Styled Presentation of HydroShare Resources with in page visualization Off the shelf modules provide a Social Experience surrounding Hydrologic Data: Comments, Ratings, Group Behavior Custom module development supports HydroShare Data Model, GeoAnalytics and iRODS Integration

Enterprise iRODS Distributed Data Grid Middleware: Users Client iCAT Rule Engine R. Server MSVC R. Server E-iRODS in HydroShare Storage of HydroShare Resources Replicated across multiple institutions Access to Computation Access to Indexing for Discovery Metadata Catalog holding virtual file system information and associated metadata Extensible number of ‘Resource Servers’ which may provide connectivity to storage resources Integrated Rule Engine for Policy Driven Data Management triggered by Data Management Activities Extensibility via Microservices (MSVC) – Plugins providing functionality to the Rule Engine
