The HydroDS tasks required to be executed to get complete UEB model inputs for an example watershed are given in the Python file “HydroDS_UEB_Setup”. This file calls functions from the other file, "hydrods_python_client" that has declarations for data service functions available from HydroDS.
To run the workflow for a different watershed in the Western US, modify the coordinates of the watershed boundary, outlet location, the start and end time of model period, and the spatial reference (projection) information in the form of EPSG Code (http://spatialreference.org/ref/epsg/). The commands in the workflow script can also be called interactively from any Python command line, or from a user application that uses incorporates the Python Client Library.
For watersheds outside of the Western US, but in the CONUS, you need to upload your own DEM. The services are currently limited to the US.
You need to have a HydroDS account to use these services.

These scripts are for the following paper
Gichamo, T. Z., N. S. Sazib, D. G. Tarboton and P. Dash, (submitted), "HydroDS: Data Services in Support of Physically Based, Distributed Hydrological Models," Environmental Modeling and Software.
