2023 Users Workshop Attendees
The 2023 Unidata Users Workshop, with the theme
Storytelling with Earth Systems Science Data: Challenges and Opportunities for
Effective, Ethical, and Reproducible Science
, took place June 5-8 Boulder, Colorado and online. The Unidata Users Committee
hosted the workshop to advance our collective ability to tell
effective and ethical stories using Earth System Science Data. The challenge of
storytelling with our data was infused throughout the event; workshop
attendees ranging from graduate students to senior scientists explored ways to
communicate the meaning of scientific ideas in effective and ethical ways, using a
variety of different kinds of data, and taking advantage of new tools like
Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML).
Welcome back to AWIPS Tips! Today we’re going to talk about the Local Data Manager (LDM) and how it’s used within AWIPS. LDM is also developed by Unidata, and is a powerful Unidata developed software tool that is used to acquire and distribute data between computers. LDM can be installed independently, however within AWIPS, it is included in the base EDEX installation along with EDEXbridge and many other software components. On EDEX machines it is and installed to /awips2/ldm.
