*Abstract: *

Multiple Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial Applications (FOSS4G)
and Web Services have been developed to provide access to both basic
information and sophisticated simulation and optimization tools in the
water resources domain. This webminar will present an overview of some of
the most important of these tools.  The architecture and functionality of
one of these FOSS/Web Services systems will be presented and based on this
insight, future developments and improvements making use of the latest FOSS
and Web Service technologies will be discussed.
