Participation and Collaboration

Collaborative Groups

HydroShare is designed with social functionality that enables you to effectively collaborate with other HydroShare users. A major part of this functionality includes Groups. You can create a Group for your research team and share resources within that group. Groups can be public or private, and you have control over what is shared with the group and what access group members have to the resources you share. The following group functions are available:

Commenting on and Rating Resources

Another collaborative feature of HydroShare is the ability to comment on and/or rate resources. Commenting on and rating resources is intended to add contextual value to a resource. For example, if you use a resource for a particular analysis, you might add a comment about your success or failure in doing so.
