Data Storage

All time series data that is hosted by the WDC is stored using the Observations Data Model as a SQL database. The specifics of ODM are documented in the Water Resource Research paper, A Relational Model for Environmental and Water Resources Data and the ODM Design Specifications Document

All GIS data published through our Spatial Data Service are stored as a Geodatabase with the metadata profile determined by each data publisher.
