HyRiver (formerly named hydrodata) is a suite of Python packages that provides a unified API for retrieving geospatial/temporal data from various web services. HyRiver includes two categories of packages:

  • Low-level APIs for accessing any of the supported web services, i.e., ArcGIS RESTful, WMS, and WFS.

  • High-level APIs for accessing some of the most commonly used datasets in hyrdology and climatology studies. Currently, this project only includes hydrology and climatology data within the US.

You can watch these videos for a quick overview of HyRiver:
