This document provides brief descriptions of HydroDS, a data processing web-based service for distributed/gridded hydrological models. HydroDS enables the generation of distributed (gridded) data for variables commonly used in hydrologic models in three widely used file formats: GeoTiff raster, shapefile, and multi-dimensional NetCDF. HydroDS provides functions for watershed delineation, terrain processing, estimation of canopy variables, and retrieval of climate data. The functions can be used independently or chained together to form a workflow that performs a set of related tasks.

Subject Keywords



This folder contains documenttation for the HydroDS. 

To open the files, inside the folder hydrodsDoc/html open "genindex.html" and you will see indexed entrees where the service functions are organized alphabetically.
Clicking on a link leads to the documentation for each service function.

To see descriptions of all functions, open "hydrods_python_client.html".

The order of the functions inside "hydrods_python_client.html" represents my suggested order of implementation--which is also roughly the order of calling the services to process UEB inputs.
