Cyberinfrastructure: the iUTAH Modeling and Data Federation
Synthesis of diverse data collection and modeling to support iUTAH research teams requires cyberinfrastructure (CI) with adequate storage, networking, computational, and human resources. The iUTAH Modeling and Data Federation (MDF) has been developed by the CI Team to support the full data lifecycle and increase capacity for data collection, organization, management, sharing, synthesis to higher-level products, and integration with models. We are working on a number of efforts to create better access to data and new tools for collaboration among iUTAH participants.
Visit the Modeling and Data Federation site for more details.
Data Publication Tutorials
Detailed instructions are available on sharing and publishing data and models to HydroShare.
HydroShare: Getting Started
HydroShare is repository for sharing, collaborating around, and formally publishing scientific data. Data and models are organized as resources.
HydroShare: Publishing Resources
Resources can be shared publicly, or with individuals or groups, with permission levels specified. HydroShare can also be used for formal publication of data.
Data Publication Overview
Learn about the process for data publication within iUTAH. The goal for data publication in iUTAH is to combat information entropy and increase the information content for data.
Data Collection Plans
This tutorial focuses on Data Collection Plans. Data collection plans are the first step in the data publication process. Learn about the Data Collection Plan template and how to fill it out.

For iUTAH Participants
Publish Your Data
The iUTAH CI team is developing tools to assist iUTAH participants in discovering, visualizing, accessing, and sharing data. Some types of data are being published using specialized applications and tools. Most investigator datasets should be shared via HydroShare. HydroShare supports formal publication of both data and models and supports collaborative groups with both public and private sharing of resources. To get started, visit HydroShare:
