AbstractWater data networks are increasingly being integrated to answer scientific questions that often span large geographical areas and cross political borders. Data heterogeneity is a major obstacle that impedes interoperability within and between such networks. It is resolved here uniquely for groundwater data at five levels of interoperability, within a Spatial Data Infrastructure architecture. The result is a pair of distinct national groundwater data networks for the United States and Canada, and an emerging linked network that for the first time enables transparent public access to harmonized groundwater data from both sides of the shared international border.
