The WMO/OGC Hydrology Domain Working Group

The Hydrology Domain Working Group is a Joint Working Group of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and the OGC. It brings together interested parties to develop and promote the technology for greatly improving the way in which water information is described and shared. This working group is to be hosted by the OGC and co-chaired by a representative from the World Meteorological Organisation’s (WMO) Commission for Hydrology (CHy). The Hydro DWG is intended to be a public forum for communication, and is open to interested parties.

The GRDC actively contributes to the Hydrology DWG particularly to the development of the Suite of Water Information Standards such as WaterML2.0 and the HY_Features common hydrologic feature model.
