Abstract Geoscientific data analysis has to face some challenges regarding seamless data analysis chains, reuse of methods and tools, interdisciplinary approaches and digitalization. Computer science and data science offer concepts to face these challenges. We took the concepts of scientific workflows and component-based software engineering and adapted it to the field of geoscience. In close collaboration of computer and geo-experts, we set up an expedient approach and technology to develop and implement scientific workflows on a conceptual and digital level. We applied the approach in the showcase “Cross-disciplinary Investigation of Flood Events” to introduce and prove the concepts in our geoscientific work environment, and assess how the approach tackles the posed challenges. This is exemplarily demonstrated with the Flood Event Explorer which has been developed in Digital Earth.
