HydroShare uses open source software and an open development approach that combines the contributions from multiple funding sources into a community system. HydroShare is being developed with numerous grants and donations. We thank our generous sponsors and partners.

HydroShare was developed with support from the National Science Foundation under collaborative grants ACI 1148453 and 1148090 to Utah State University and RENCI at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.  These development grants supported a team including the Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Science, Inc (CUAHSI), Brigham Young University, Tufts University, University of Virginia, Purdue University, University of Texas at Austin, San Diego Supercomputing Center, and University of Washington for the development of the HydroShare platform (http://www.hydroshare.org) from 2012-2017.

Following completion of the HydroShare development project, CUAHSI will assume full responsibility for operation and maintenance of HydroShare.  CUAHSI is supported by NSF cooperative agreement EAR 1338606.

The HydroShare web applications platform (http://apps.hydroshare.org) uses the Tethys software developed as part of the CI-WATER project (http://ci-water.org) funded by NSF award EPS 1135482.

The CyberGIS TauDEM and JupyterHub web apps are hosted on the ROGER supercomputer (https://wiki.ncsa.illinois.edu/display/ROGER, supported by NSF under grant number: 1429699) at the CyberGIS Center for Advanced Digital and Spatial Studies at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign's National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), and were developed with support in part by NSF award ACI 1047916.

Utah’s Track 1 ESCoR project (iUtah) is using HydroShare as a repository, and has supported the development of functionality for storage of time series and data derived from environmental samples in HydroShare through NSF award OIA-1208732.

Landlab (http://landlab.github.io/) is a Python-based modeling environment that uses  HydroShare as a platform to host Landlab Jupyter notebooks to build numerical landscape models in disciplines that quantify earth surface dynamics (such as geomorphology, hydrology, glaciology, and stratigraphy and related fields) through award ACI-1450412.

The Geotrust Earthcube project is supporting the development of interoperability between GeoTrust and HydroShare through NSF award ICER 1639759.  This project is investigating how HydroShare can be extended to support transparency and reproducibility of geoscience modeling workflows, and how to best store and share these workflows in HydroShare.

The WikiWatershed web toolkit -- including Model My Watershed, Monitor My Watershed and EnviroDIY -- is contributing to the development of applications programming interface functionality, with support from the William Penn Foundation, to support the storage of and collaboration around WikiWatershed data in HydroShare.

The HydroShare team is grateful for this diversity of contributions. Any opinions, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the authors and developers and do not necessarily reflect the views of the NSF or other funding organizations.
