Sharing information in a more efficient way is becoming increasingly important. To make this possible in the water sector a platform is needed to facilitate the exchange of information. This platform allows for keeping data at the source, which can be accessed all over the world. The data exchange will become possible when the platform works according the right standards. An integrated model based on existing standards is one of the first steps in achieving better communication and interoperability. The research goal is to design a well defined information model based on standards that will be optimal for implementation in a information infrastructure within the water sector to make the 1D time series data exchange easier.

To create one Standard Based Information Model (SBIM) the international standards that are most recognised are selected and reviewed; ISO 19156 O&M, OGC Timeseries Profile of O&M and WaterML 2.0: Part 1- Timeseries. This is done to get a clear and complete SBIM that gives an accurate insight on both the positive and negative aspects of the existing standards, and will show in one information model the possible relation between them.
The Packet Plan with Packet A uses a totally different approach to the standards. It illustrates that there is no need to implement the total standard in all its richness at once to be able to share data, instead it presents a model with the concept of minimized packets. This is a time efficient process where the implementation of the standard will be in parts, leading to less information at once but divided over the packets. The user will only get the required information for the specific part the user needs at that time, resulting in an easier and more time efficient data exchange.
