Modeling of water resources are increasingly becoming multidisciplinary collaborative tasks that will rely on development of cloud applications. Cloud applications will (1) collect all water related data in the database system (weather forecasts, climate variations, urbanization, population and economic growth, etc.), (2) create common platform for data access and web service development and (3) develop specialized web services for solving water issues. Data sources and web services are integrated and used for water modeling tasks via cloud computing applications as the one demonstrated here. The presented cloud application for supporting water resources modeling is built on three latest advancements in computer science and technology: Cloud Computing, Service Oriented Architecture and web Geographic Information Systems. The cloud application integrate three web services: (1) web service for managing of geospatial data (2) web service for supporting water resources modeling and (3) web service for optimization of water resources. The cloud application advantages over previous technology are in accessibility, availability, flexibility in adding new components, scalable computational power, internet based collaboration platform and dissemination of valuable information between stakeholders and general public.
