• Unidata Joins the Open Commons Consortium Unidata Joins the Open Commons Consortium
    February 10, 2016

    The Unidata Program has become an offical member of the Open Commons Consortium (OCC).

    The OCC, formerly known as the Open Cloud Consortium, is a not-for-profit organization that manages and operates cloud computing and data commons infrastructure to support scientific, medical, health care and environmental research. OCC members span the globe and include over 30 universities, companies, government agencies, and national laboratories.

    As a member of OCC, Unidata's initial focus will be participation in the OCC NOAA Data Alliance Working Group, which aims to support the NOAA data commons and the geoscience community interested in the open redistribution of NOAA datasets. (Unidata is also involved with cloud-based access to NOAA data through its collaboration with Amazon Web Services.)

    Equipment Awards
    Unidata offers equipment grants to support a variety of projects

    Just a reminder that the 2016 Unidata Community Equipment Awards solicitation is open for new proposals through March 25, 2016. If you're looking for equipment (physical hardware or cloud-based services) to get your Unidata technology project off the ground, we encourage you to submit a proposal.

    Created under the sponsorship of the National Science Foundation, Unidata equipment awards are intended to encourage new members from diverse disciplinary backgrounds in the geosciences to join the Unidata community, and to encourage existing members to continue their active participation, enhancing the community process. For 2016, a total of $100,000 is available for awards; proposals for amounts up to $20,000 will be considered.

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.
