Why comment on and rate a resource? Comments and ratings are intended to provide helpful information to other HydroShare users that may want to download and use the resource data. Commenting also provides another means of communication and collaboration on HydroShare. Users can describe how they may have used the data in their research or ask the author of the resource something about the data.
