Hydroinformatics Course

The hydroinformatics course has been simultaneously offered across the CI-WATER partner campuses (USU, U of U, and BYU). Additional support has been provided by the iUTAH Project. Each university designated an instructor to manage things on their end, be present during class time, help deliver course content, evaluate and support work by students on their campus.


Hydroinformatics is the study, design, development, and deployment of hardware and software systems for hydrologic data collection, distribution, interpretation, and analysis to aid in the understanding and management of water in the natural and built environment. This class will introduce students to fundamental and advanced hydroinformatics concepts and procedures including automated data collection networks, relational databases and data management software, metadata and semantics, data storage file formats and standards, data transformations and automation of data manipulation tasks to support modeling and analysis, web based data distribution and access using web services, and integrated networks of hydro-climate data.
