The DRINET hub is home to researchers, students to publish their own models and tools, datasets, analysis, visualization, training and educational materials for studying droughts. Currently, the DRINET project focuses on using information from past droughts in Indiana to improve drought characterization and study linkages between causal factors of droughts and their impacts. This presentation provides an overview of the datasets, tools and applications that have been built into the DRINET hub to support (1) dynamic data access/analysis using GIS (geographic information system) software; (2) self data publishing and sharing among stakeholders; (3) metadata standardization; (4) tools/applications for drought characterization, prediction and visualization; (5) education and community engagement. Emphasis will be placed on the technologies used to enable quick web application development in the hub environment as well as the integration of GIS and data management capabilities which currently lack native support from the HUBzero software stack. The presenters will also seek developer and end user input on how these components can be improved and shared with the community.
