CyberGIS-Jupyter platform has become an essential component of cyberGIS infrastructure that enables users to perform data-intensive, reproducible, and scalable geospatial analytics in a friendly and familiar Jupyter Notebook environment. While a generic geospatial-enabled notebook environment can generally meet the common research needs from multidisciplinary users, a further tailored service usually does a better job in serving domain-specific research workflows and complex modelling. HydroShare, an on-going NSF-funded project in Hydroinformatic area, has joined forces with CyberGIS to develop a next-generation CyberGIS-Jupyter for Water (CJW) platform to enhance the support for collaborative community hydrologic modelling. CJW provisions the capabilities of preparing, analyzing and executing hydrologic models on advanced cyberinfrastructure and computing resources to community hydrologic researchers and streamlines the whole modeling workflow through a seamless integration of well-developed HydroShare functionalities including data storage, sharing, web app and social addons. This paper presents the design, architecture and current progress of the CJW project. A brief review on outstanding achievements and lessons learned is also provided, which could shed some light on the development of other domain-specific Jupyter Notebook-based cyberinfrastructure.
