Hydroclimate Data Retriever#
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.
