- The National Water Census is a USGS research program on national water availability and use that develops new water accounting tools and assesses water availability at the regional and national scales. Through the Water Census, USGS is integrating diverse research on water availability and use and enhancing the understanding of connection between water quality and water availability. Research is designed to build decision support capacity for water management agencies and other natural resource managers. It is one of six major science directions identified by the USGS in its 2007 Science Plan and is called for in the SECURE Water Act and implemented through the Department of the Interior WaterSMART initiative.

Stable and unstable channels are considered, including brief descriptions of the effects on the stage–discharge relationship of shifting controls, variable backwater and hysteresis. Methods of determining discharge for twin–gauge stations, ultrasonic velocity–measurement stations, electromagnetic velocity–measurement stations and other complex rating curves are not described in detail. These types of rating curve are described separately in other International Standards, Technical Specifications and Technical Reports, which are listed in ISO 1100–2.
- WaterML2 is a new data exchange standard in Hydrology which can basically be used to exchange many kinds of hydro–meteorological observations and measurements. WaterML2 has been initiated and designed over a period of several years by a group of major national and international organizations from public and private sector, such as CSIRO, CUAHSI, USGS, BOM, NOAA, KISTERS and others. WaterML2 has been developed within the OGC Hydrology Domain Working group which has a mandate by the WMO, too.

## R GUIs (Graphical User Interface) — Using R with a GUI

- R GUI Projects
- SciViews: R GUI Projects Overview
- RStudio™ is a free and open source integrated development environment (IDE) for R. You can run it on your desktop (Windows, Mac, or Linux) or even over the web using RStudio Server.

- SAS and R: managing projects using RStudio Posted by Nick Horton, Friday, February 10, 2012
- Bio7 is an integrated development environment for ecological modelling and contains powerful tools for model creation, scientific image analysis and statistical analysis. The application itself is based on an RCP–Eclipse–Environment (Rich–Client–Platform) which offers a huge flexibility in configuration and extensibility because of its plug–in structure and the possibility of customization.
- The Tinn–R is an editor/word processor ASCII/UNICODE generic for the Windows operating system, very well integrated into the R, with characteristics of Graphical User Interface (GUI) and Integrated Development Environment (IDE).
- Red–R is a open source visual programming interface for R designed to bring the power of the R statistical environment to a broader audience. The goal of this project is to provide access to the massive library of packages in R (and even non–R packages) without any programming expertise. The Red–R framework uses concepts of data–flow programming to make data the center of attention while hiding all the programming complexity.
- R commander (Rcmdr): a graphical interface for R
- JGR (speak ‘Jaguar’) is a universal and unified Graphical User Interface for R (it actually abbreviates Java Gui for R). JGR was introduced at the useR! meeting in 2004 and there is an introductory article in the
*Statistical Computing and Graphics Newsletter*Vol 16 nr 2 p 9–12 - Deducer Manual: An R Graphical User Interface (GUI) for Everyone: Deducer is designed to be a free easy to use alternative to proprietary data analysis software such as SPSS, JMP, and Minitab. It has a menu system to do common data manipulation and analysis tasks, and an excel–like spreadsheet in which to view and edit data frames. The goal of the project is two fold. Provide an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) for R, encouraging non–technical users to learn and perform analyses without programming getting in their way. Increase the efficiency of expert R users when performing common tasks by replacing hundreds of keystrokes with a few mouse clicks. Also, as much as possible the GUI should not get in their way if they just want to do some programming. Deducer is designed to be used with the Java based R console JGR, though it supports a number of other R environments (e.g. Windows RGUI and RTerm).

- sasCommunity.org Planet: R
- R for SAS, SPSS and Stata Users: r4stats.com
- r4stats.com: Add–ons: R has over 5,000 add–on packages, many containing multiple procedures, so it can do most of the things that SAS and SPSS can do and quite a bit more. The table below focuses only on SAS and SPSS products and which of them have counterparts in R. As a result, some categories are extremely broad (e.g. regression) while others are quite narrow (e.g. conjoint analysis). This table does not contain the hundreds of R packages that have no counterparts in the form of SAS or SPSS products. There are many important topics (e.g. mixed models, survival analysis) offered by all three that are not listed because neither SAS Institute nor IBM's SPSS Company sell a product focused just on that.
- Quick–R: R is an elegant and comprehensive statistical and graphical programming language. Unfortunately, it can also have a steep learning curve. I created this website for both current R users, and experienced users of other statistical packages (e.g., SAS, SPSS, Stata) who would like to transition to R. My goal is to help you quickly access this language in your work.

- latticeExtra is an R package (i.e. a package for the R statistical computing environment), providing functions for generating statistical graphics. It extends the Lattice framework (lattice package), which is an implementation of Trellis graphics in R. Many of the functions and datasets in latticeExtra are described in Deepayan Sarkar's book,
*Lattice: Multivariate Data Visualization with R*. The book web site also includes figures and code. This site serves as a reference for the R functions and datasets in the package. *Lattice: Multivariate Data Visualization with R*– Figures and Code by Deepayan Sarkar- directlabels: This package is an attempt to make direct labeling a reality in everyday statistical practice by making available a body of useful functions that make direct labeling of common plots easy to do with high–level plotting systems such as lattice and ggplot2. The main function that the package provides is direct.label(p), which takes a lattice or ggplot2 plot p and adds direct labels.
- ggplot2 is a plotting system for R, based on the grammar of graphics, which tries to take the good parts of base and lattice graphics and none of the bad parts. It takes care of many of the fiddly details that make plotting a hassle (like drawing legends) as well as providing a powerful model of graphics that makes it easy to produce complex multi–layered graphics.

- U.S. Department of Agriculture – U.S. Forest Service Rocky Mountain Research Station Air, Water, & Aquatic Environments Program: SSN & STARS: Tools for Spatial Statistical Modeling on Stream Networks: Spatial statistical models for streams provide a new set of analytical tools that can be used to improve predictions of physical, chemical, and biological characteristics on stream networks. These models are unique because they account for patterns of spatial autocorrelation among locations based on both Euclidean and in–stream distances. They also have practical applications for the design of monitoring strategies and the derivation of information from databases with non–random sample locations. Generating the spatial data needed to fit these statistical models requires practical skills in multiple disciplines including ecology, geospatial science, and statistics. This is the home page for two sets of tools that have been developed to make the methodology more accessible to users: the STARS ArcGIS toolset and the SSN package for R statistical software. These models were developed by researchers at NOAA and CSIRO.

## Creating Documents, Presentations, and Reports with R and friends

- CRAN Package: knitr: Provides a general–purpose tool for dynamic report generation in R using Literate Programming techniques.
- CRAN Package: ReporteRs: Create ‘Microsoft Word’ document (>=2007), ‘Microsoft PowerPoint’ document (>=2007) and ‘HTML’ documents from R. There are several features to let you format and present R outputs ; e.g. Editable Vector Graphics, functions for complex tables reporting, reuse of corporate template document. You can use the package as a tool for fast reporting and as a tool for reporting automation. The package does not require any installation of Microsoft product to be able to write Microsoft files.
- CRAN Package: R.rsp: The RSP markup language makes any text–based document come alive. RSP provides a powerful markup for controlling the content and output of LaTeX, HTML, Markdown, AsciiDoc, Sweave and knitr documents (and more), e.g. ‘Today's date is <%=Sys.Date()%>’. Contrary to many other literate programming languages, with RSP it is straightforward to loop over mixtures of code and text sections, e.g. in month–by–month summaries. RSP has also several preprocessing directives for incorporating static and dynamic contents of external files (local or online) among other things. Functions rstring() and rcat() make it easy to process RSP strings, rsource() sources an RSP file as it was an R script, while rfile() compiles it (even online) into its final output format, e.g. rfile(‘report.tex.rsp’) generates ‘report.pdf’ and rfile(‘report.md.rsp’) generates ‘report.html’. RSP is ideal for self–contained scientific reports and R package vignettes. It's easy to use – if you know how to write an R script, you'll be up and running within minutes.
- CRAN Package: papeR: A toolbox for writing ‘knitr’, ‘Sweave’ or other ‘LaTeX’– or ‘markdown’–based reports and to prettify the output of various estimated models.
- CRAN Package: exreport: Analysis of experimental results and automatic report generation in both interactive HTML and LaTeX. This package ships with a rich interface for data modeling and built in functions for the rapid application of statistical tests and generation of common plots and tables with publish–ready quality.
- CRAN Package: rapport: Facilitating the creation of reproducible statistical report templates. Once created, rapport templates can be exported to various external formats (HTML, LaTeX, PDF, ODT etc.) with pandoc as the converter backend.
- CRAN Package: rmarkdown: Convert R Markdown documents into a variety of formats.

It is based on FusionForge offering easy access to the best in SVN, daily built and checked packages, mailing lists, bug tracking, message boards/forums, site hosting, permanent file archival, full backups, and total web–based administration.
- RForge strives to provide a collaborative environment for R package developers. The ultimate goal is to offer SourceForge–like services (such as SVN repository, place for documentation, downloads, mailing lists, bugzilla, wiki etc.) without the annoying look and feel but with additional features specific to R package development, such as make check on–commit, nightly builds of packages, testing on various platforms and full CRAN–like repository access. The focus is on R–specific features that are not offered by SourceForge or GForge.

- rOpenGov: R Ecosystem for Open Government Data and Computational Social Science
- At rOpenSci we are creating packages that allow access to data repositories through the R statistical programming environment that is already a familiar part of the workflow of many scientists. Our tools not only facilitate drawing data into an environment where it can readily be manipulated, but also one in which those analyses and methods can be easily shared, replicated, and extended by other researchers. We develop open source R packages that provide programmatic access to a variety of scientific data, full–text of journal articles, and repositories that provide real–time metrics of scholarly impact. Visit our packages section for a full list of production and development versions of packages.

FWTools includes OpenEV, GDAL, MapServer, PROJ.4 and OGDI as well as some supporting components. The FWTools kits also aims to track the latest development versions of the packages included as opposed to official releases. While this may mean the packages are less stable, it is intended to give folks a chance to use the latest and greatest. FWTools releases also are a means by which I make recent development version bug fixes available to a wider audience than would be prepared to build them from the source. With FWTools releases, I also endeavor to build in as many optional components as possible. Thus, I include support for ECW, JPEG2000, HDF and other file formats that require extra libraries. Linux FWTools releases are intended to be distribution and packaging system agnostic. They should install on pretty much any x86 style Linux system released within the last few years.

- ANUGA [Australian National University (ANU) and Geoscience Australia (GA)] is a Free & Open Source Software (FOSS) package capable of modelling the impact of hydrological disasters such as dam breaks, riverine flooding, storm–surge or tsunamis. ANUGA is based on the Shallow Water Wave Equation discretised to unstructured triangular meshes using a finite–volumes numerical scheme. A major capability of ANUGA is that it can model the process of wetting and drying as water enters and leaves an area. This means that it is suitable for simulating water flow onto a beach or dry land and around structures such as buildings. ANUGA is also capable of modelling difficult flows involving shock waves and rapidly changing flow speed regimes (transitions from sub critical to super critical flows).

- PMTK is a collection of Matlab/Octave functions, written by Matt Dunham, Kevin Murphy and various other people. The toolkit is primarily designed to accompany Kevin Murphy's textbook,
*Machine learning: a probabilistic perspective*, but can also be used independently of this book. The goal is to provide a unified conceptual and software framework encompassing machine learning, graphical models, and Bayesian statistics (hence the logo). (Some methods from frequentist statistics, such as cross validation, are also supported.) The toolbox is currently (December 2011) in maintenance mode, meaning that bugs will be fixed, but no new features will be added (at least not by Kevin or Matt). PMTK supports a large variety of probabilistic models, including linear and logistic regression models (optionally with kernels), SVMs and gaussian processes, directed and undirected graphical models, various kinds of latent variable models (mixtures, PCA, HMMs, etc), etc. Several kinds of prior are supported, including Gaussian (L2 regularization), Laplace (L1 regularization), Dirichlet, etc. Many algorithms are supported, for both Bayesian inference (including dynamic programming, variational Bayes and MCMC) and MAP/ML estimation (including EM, conjugate and projected gradient methods, etc.) PMTK builds on top of several existing packages, available from pmtksupport, and provides a unified interface to them. In addition, it provides readable “reference” implementations of many common machine learning techniques. The vast majority of the code is written in Matlab. (For a brief discussion of why we chose Matlab, Most of the code also runs on Octave, an open–source Matlab clone.) However, in a few cases we also provide wrappers to implementations written in C, for speed reasons. PMTK currently (October 2010) has over 67,000 lines of code. PMTK contains many demos of different methods applied to many different kinds of data sets. The demos are listed here, and the data is available from pmktdata (but will be downloaded automatically when a demo calls loadData). - pymc: Markov Chain Monte Carlo sampling toolkit. Bayesian estimation, particularly using Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC), is an increasingly relevant approach to statistical estimation. However, few statistical software packages implement MCMC samplers, and they are non–trivial to code by hand. pymc is a python package that implements the Metropolis–Hastings algorithm as a python class, and is extremely flexible and applicable to a large suite of problems. pymc includes methods for summarizing output, plotting, goodness–of–fit and convergence diagnostics. pymc only requires NumPy. All other dependencies such as matplotlib, SciPy, pytables, sqlite or mysql are optional.
