SS7 Demonstrating pathways of access to near-real time oceanographic data from the NSF Ocean Observatories Initiative OOI)
Location: Tikahtnu Ballroom C
Attendance: Open to all attending OCEANS’17 and Exhibition Pass Holders
In this special demonstration session, the Data Team from the U.S. National Science Foundation’s Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) will provide live demonstrations and key information on the variety of ways in which the scientific and engineering communities can connect with OOI data. Topics explored will include various methods of data access, such as quick-look plotting, asynchronous downloads, ERDDAP, and setting up a Machine-to-Machine interface. Tools will be demonstrated and help/tutorial information will be provided for future exploration.
Additionally, the Data QA/QC process will be described including automated QC algorithms, human in the loop QC by the data team, data annotation, and additional data validation opportunities.
Lastly, tools will be demonstrated that have been created by OOI staff and members of the community to analyze raw data streams, including sensor algorithm Python modules. The OOI Data Forum will also be discussed as a connection platform for individuals to share their own algorithms and data processing techniques or questions with the community.
We welcome members of the audience to describe their own use of the data, tools, or modules they have created to utilize the data, etc.
