HDWG Groundwater 2 IE

This groundwater interoperability experiment (GW2IE) will develop and test the GroundWater Markup Language 2, by harmonizing and advancing existing modeling initiatives such as: GWML1, relevant EU-INSPIRE models (Geology-hydrogeology, Environmental monitoring facilities), GeoSciML, and others. It will produce an engineering report in preparation for movement to an OGC data specification subsequent to the GW2IE.

HDWG Surface Water IE

This interoperability experiment will advance the development of WaterML 2.0, test its use with various OGC service standards (SOS, WFS, WMS and CSW). It will also contribute to the development of a hydrology domain feature model and vocabularies, which are essential for interoperability in the hydrology domain.
