DOIs Available for Unidata Technologies

doi.org

Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) are now available for select Unidata technologies. We encourage you to use the DOIs when citing or otherwise referring to these technologies, because they provide a mechanism by which the information referred to can be found even if the web address underlying the DOI changes over time.

DOIs are strings of characters assigned by a registering organization to uniquely idenfity a digital resource such as a document, software package, data set, or other electronic “object.” DOIs have been created for the Integrated Data Viewer (IDV), the THREDDS Data Server (TDS), and the netCDF libraries. The DOIs are assumed to persist indefinitely, so they are preferable to using standard URLs in your citations. The DOIs are:

2015 Users Workshop Explores Python, Cloud Computing, Data Management

Description
Workshop poster session

The 2015 Unidata Users Workshop took place June 22-25 at UCAR's Center Green facility in Boulder, Colorado. The workshop's theme — Data-Driven Geoscience: Applications, Opportunities, Trends, and Challenges — drew participants from across the atmospheric and other geosciences communities. Attendees took part in a series of presentations and hands-on exercises that explored how trends in cloud computing and Python-based workflows affect how scientists interact with and manage ever-growing data volumes.

Eighteen presenters from the Unidata community shared their insights on incorporating new technologies into scientific workflows across the geosciences. Sessions investigated topics ranging from using python tools to access remote datasets and adding cloud computing resources to data-intensive processes to building literacy in scientific computing and preserving data resources and citations. In many cases, presenters encouraged other participants to follow along with hands-on examples and exercises.
