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 sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
