Data & Modeling




Cyberinfrastructure & iUTAH

The cyberinfrastructure (CI) of iUTAH merged diverse data collection and modeling tools to facilitate research. To this end, the CI Team implemented various tools, resources, and workflows to support the full data life cycle and increase capacity for data collection, organization, management, sharing, synthesis, and integration. The compilation of these resources is known as the iUTAH Modeling and Data Federation (MDF). In addition, the CI team coordinated the sharing of iUTAH research results, which comprise an open-access collection including datasets, models, and digital content available for public and private access and use.

iUTAH Ecohydrologic Observatory (GAMUT) Data

GAMUT (Gradients Along Mountain to Urban Transitions) is an environmental monitoring network developed by iUTAH to study water in three Utah watersheds. The Time Series Analyst is an open access web-based tool for exploring and accessing GAMUT data.


For iUTAH Participants


Data Publishing

Publish your data

iUTAH participants have used HydroShare to publish data. HydroShare is a system operated by the Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Science, Inc. (CUAHSI) that enables users to share and publish data and models in a variety of flexible formats, and to make this information available in a citable, shareable and discoverable manner. For more information, visit HydroShare.


Publishing Policies and Procedures

iUTAH Data Policy
The iUTAH Data Policy formally governs all datasets developed as part of or supported by iUTAH. Since an emphasis of the iUTAH project was the sharing of data and research projects, data typology and timeframes have been specified for data and metadata submission and release.

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.

Note: Data publication for iUTAH has migrated to HydroShare, so some details covered in the tutorials are outdated.


Software Development


The CI Team worked to develop various tools to support iUTAH research efforts. All of these products are open source and can be accessed via GitHub repositories.  More Information...
