CHPS assists the growing community of hydrologic users sharing data and computer models. This requires improved cooperation and coordination within NOAA, as well as with other federal, state, municipal, academic and private institutions. Better coordination among water agencies will improve the accuracy and utility of the entire community’s water-based forecasts. CHPS provides a new business model in which members of the hydrometeorological community operate more collaboratively through the sharing and infusion of advances in science and new data, without each member having to build or take ownership of the entire system.
