This presentation describes the HydroShare web based hydrologic information system operated by the Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Science Inc. (CUAHSI). HydroShare users share and publish data and models in a variety of flexible formats, in order to make this information available in a citable, shareable and discoverable format for the advancement of hydrologic science. HydroShare includes a repository for data and models, and tools (web apps) that can act on content in HydroShare and save results back into the repository. This presentation will focus on the key capabilities of, and concepts behind HydroShare that support web based collaborative research that is open and enhances reproducibility and trust in research findings, through sharing of the data, models and scripts used to generate results. I will also describe work in progress to advance HydroShare using JupyterHub to provide flexible and documentable analyses and to serve as a gateway to high performance computing. For this workshop I will address the question of what I would like and why from a digital data resource and repository, giving my ideas about the need for a platform for collaboration and computation that integrates data storage, organization, discovery, and programmable actions through web applications (web apps) and that allows researchers to easily employ services beyond the desktop to make data storage and manipulation more reliable and scalable, while improving ability to collaborate and reproduce results.
