ready Water Markup Language

Abbreviation: WaterML

General Information
WaterML 2.0 is a standard information model for the representation of water observations data, with the intent of allowing the exchange of such data sets across information systems. Through the use of existing OGC standards, it aims at being an interoperable exchange format that may be re-used to address a range of exchange requirements. The primary goal of this profile is to capture the semantics of hydrological observational data for data exchange. This will allow hydrological information systems to communicate data between systems and to end users.
