    Cece Hedrick

    Cece Hedrick joined the Unidata Program Center (UPC) team on October 16th, 2017 as a software developer. Her first day at the office coincided with the joint meeting of Unidata's Users' and Strategic Advisory Committees, so … we pretty much threw her in the deep end of the pool. On the bright side, Cece got an instant introduction to the community we're working for.

    Cece studied astrophysics and computer science at the University of Nebraska. As an astronomer she has worked in a wide range of research categories from supermassive black holes, circumstellar disks, and symbiotic stars to the Martian atmosphere as part of NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter mission. As a computer scientist she has also explored a wide range of research topics, such as, bioinformatics, modeling and simulation for war gaming, and user experience/human computer interaction within the learning sciences. As a software developer, Cece has previously worked on military secure messaging and data transfer solutions, cable television software product continuous integration, and space weather prediction and analysis software.

    Geospatial Software Institute

    The National Science Foundation has recently funded a project to conceptualize a Geospatial Software Institute (GSI) as a long-term hub of excellence in software infrastructure that can serve diverse research and education communities. To achieve the goal and associated aims, the project will design a community organization called the Geospatial Innovation Consortium for High-Performance Software and Discovery to mobilize and serve pertinent communities and stakeholders in a sustainable way. In connection with this initiative, broad community input is being sought to help design the GSI. An online survey is available and responses are requested no later than January 25, 2018.

Data

The Unidata Program center makes a wide variety of near-real-time and archive geoscience data and model output available to the university community. See the Data page for an overview of the available data types and access methods.

Real-time Model Output

Data visualization tools available from Unidata and elsewhere allow you to create dynamic displays of past, current, or forecast scenarios. This display shows a dynamically-selected Region of Interest culled from a regional weather model.
