Unidata is happy to announce the Community Equipment Award recipients for 2016. Five institutions received funding this year:

  • Oregon State University
  • Pennsylvania State University
  • University of Iowa
  • University of Louisiana at Monroe

This year special consideration was given to proposals that involve:

  • Installation of an AWIPS II standalone EDEX server to test data ingest locally, as well as the CAVE client to display data from local and remote servers
  • Implementation of or pilot projects with remotely-accessible storage systems for geoscience data (“cloud-based storage”)
  • Implementation of or pilot projects with remote server-based data analysis or visualization systems (“cloud-based analysis”)
  • Installation of a Jupyter notebook server in the cloud to experiment with Python for data-proximate analysis and visualization

For additional details on the proposals funded this year, see the 2016 Equipment Awards page.

We received a total of nine responses to the 2016 RFP and funded five of them, partially or fully.

We invite you to provide suggestions for the focus of future Equipment Award RFPs, and to keep your eyes open for the 2017 announcement. To get an idea of the wide range of recipient institutions and projects, including copies of successful proposals, visit the Equipment Awards page.
