Welcome to the Hobbes Project

The Center for Watershed Sciences welcomes you to join us in an endeavor to build a new concept in water and environmental modeling.

The Hobbes Project is a bottom up approach to improve and organize the data for water modeling efforts in California. This effort is trying to provide a venue for modelers in California and elsewhere to create an open, organized and documented quantitative representation of the state’s intertied water resources system.

Geocoded elements in this database can be interactively converted into tiered networks able to be solved by multiple modeling platforms depending on user preferences, with the appropriate translators. Many Hobbes tools will be web-based with exporting capabilities to the most common analytical and modeling software.
