CIRA

Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere

The inaugural GeoIPS Workshop

The inaugural GeoIPS Workshop will be held at the Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, CO in collaboration with the US Naval Research Laboratory.

August 4th & 5th, 2022

CIRA, CSU
3925A West Laport Ave.
Fort Collins, CO 80521

Purpose

As the inaugural workshop, this event will focus on expanding the GeoIPS user community, helping new users set up and understand how to use GeoIPS, and developing key GeoIPS requirements. Thursday will focus on introducing GeoIPS to new users and will include presentations from a selection of current GeoIPS users, and hands-on sessions learning how to install and use GeoIPS. Friday will focus on expanding GeoIPS using its plugin architecture – including tutorials for adding new readers and algorithms, and group work implementing new functionality.

Meeting Preparation

For the GeoIPS workshop, we will be using Jupyter Notebooks to demonstrate how to use GeoIPS. VSCode provides a nice environment for working with Jupyter Notebooks, so we ask that everyone install it prior to the workshop so that we are all working in a similar environment.

Regardless of whether you will be running GeoIPS directly on your laptop or on a remote server, you will need to install VSCode on your laptop. You will SSH to your remote machine through VSCode. You will also install two VSCode plugins: the Microsoft Python Extension and Remote SSH.

The first day (Wednesday, Aug 3rd, 2022) will be comprised of ONR project reviews for a handful of projects and may not be of interest to many workshop participants. The workshop itself will be held on Thursday and Friday, August 4th & 5th, 2022.

For those who are less aware of GeoIPS, it is an open source generalized processing system developed by the US Naval Research Laboratory Marine Meteorology Division.  GeoIPS provides a collection of algorithm and product implementations, facilitating consistent and reliable production of imagery and derived data products across a variety of sensors, models, and other data types.

Importantly, GeoIPS can act as a transition pathway to get scientific algorithms to multiple operational entities. It is in operational use by the US Navy, products from GeoIPS are used routinely at the Joint Typhoon Warning Center, and GeoIPS is being used in near real-time demonstrations at NOAA’s National Hurricane Center.

  • Consistent code base for research and development through operational transitions
  • Flexible workflow to allow efficient real-time processing as well as interactive processing
  • Modular interfaces to facilitate product development
  • Seamless application to proprietary data types and products (no reference to external functionality within the main code base)
  • Consistent product application across multiple sensors (both open source and proprietary)
  • Ability to interface with workflow management tools (cylc)
  • Ability to interface with databases (postgres)
  • Ability to generate log outputs

Parking at CIRA on the CSU Foothills Campus:

Parking on campus requires a permit. You can purchase hourly or daily parking. https://pts.colostate.edu/visitors/parking/

Hourly parking costs $1.50/hour and can be purchased in the parking lot using the hourly pay machines. The machine for the Foothills Campus is located down off Laport by the Colorado National Guard building. You can also access these pay stations through the Park Mobile application on your mobile phone zone 2017. Have your license plate number ready.

Daily parking permits can be purchased online or at the Parking and Transportation Services located in the Lake Street Garage for $8/day for a Foothills Only Pass

GeoIPS has recently been made open-source and can be found on GitHub!

Feel free to browse the GeoIPS documentation before the meeting. The documentation is fairly thorough but is still a work-in-progress that will be a large discussion point for current developers during the workshop. If you find issues with the documentation or areas where it could be improved, please submit an issue or bring it up with us directly.

For a list of built-in data reading capabilities, see here. Keep in mind that this list can be extended either by adding plugins or by adding readers directly to the open-source GeoIPS repository.

If you have any questions regarding the workshop, please contact:
