Meeting title:

Open working session of the Global Water Information Interest Group

A short introduction describing the activities and the scope of the group:

The Global Water Information Interest Group (GWIIG) enables communication among RDA WGs and IGs focused on both technical eInfrastructure aspects (e.g. brokering; metadata and catalogs, dynamic data citation) and on related research domains (e.g. geosciences, agriculture, biodiversity) that are pertinent to water and water data. The group also provides a coordination mechanism across a wide group of water information stakeholders, in particular those not previously involved in the efforts of the active OGC/WMO Hydrology group on water data standardization. Recent and current areas of interest are: 
• Dynamic data citation in water
• Vocabularies in water, particularly for freshwater quality measurements
• Water data discovery and water data portals
• Water data rescue
