    The Unidata Program Center (UPC) software development team has been searching for ways to leverage the technologies behind popular packages like ChatGPT and Stable Diffusion to help Earth Systems Sciences researchers, educators, and students reach scientific conclusions more quickly and with less effort. Augmenting our scientific visualization and analysis packages with modern machine learning features will help you understand environmental conditions — real or imagined! — more quickly and easily.

  • Unidata Committee Nominations Open Unidata Committee Nominations Open
    March 23, 2023

    Unidata is governed by its community. Our governing committees facilitate consensus-building for future directions of the Unidata Program and establish standards of involvement for the community. Direct involvement in the Program by the academic community helps Unidata stay on top of trends in Earth Systems Science education and research; for example, recent initiatives on Python and cloud-based computing have benefited tremendously from committee advice and involvement.

    We are looking for creative people at U.S. universities and colleges who are using Unidata products and services — or who are familiar with Unidata — to help guide the program in addressing the needs of our broadening community. We need the insights of active educators and researchers to spot new opportunities and take advantage of the expanding range of scientific data. We're looking for help identifying new tools and services — along with improvements to our existing offerings — that will advance the scientific and educational goals of the community.
