The service handles exchanges of hydrologic data between servers, databases, and applications for data sharing and analysis. It provides a specialized flavor of XML known as WaterML. Provided by a consortium of university hydrology programs, it is part of a Hydrology Information Service (HIS) that documents and supports research in water supplies and environmental activities within many watersheds studied by affiliated researchers.
API methods support retrieval of a list of sites studied with information objects and metadata summarizing location and conditions. The API also returns variables tracked and values logged.
The following is a list of historical changes that were made to this asset. Typically,
once an API is published on ProgrammableWeb.com, the data we keep about that asset gets updated over the course of its life. For example, the endpoint or home page of the documentation might change.
As a means of enforcing the integrity of our data, every time a non-trivial change is made to the data we keep about an asset,
we require the entry of some changelog text before that change can be saved. This way, we have a great audit trail of all
activity surrounding the asset. For each asset, the changelogs begins with the moment an asset is approved for publication on ProgrammableWeb.
If you spot an error in our data and believe that a record needs to be updated in some way,
the ProgrammableWeb team would very much like to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org
So far, we don't have a record of any changes to this API
