Unidata AWIPS 17.1.1-5 is now available for Red Hat/CentOS 6/7 and macOS. Unidata AWIPS is a meteorological display and analysis package originally developed by the National Weather Service and Raytheon, repackaged by Unidata to support non-operational use in research and education.

Installation instructions:

This is a major release with the following updates:

  • GOES East (16/R) updates for operational mode, new geostationary position, ingest of stitched CONUS and Full Disk netCDF files, menu updates for Geostationary Lightning Mapper (GLM), and Derived Motion Winds (DMW).
  • EDEX no longer installs awips2-python-setuptools, which was not required for the software to run, and in some cases would prevent virtual machines from booting due to Python version conflicts.
  • el6 and el7 RPMs are built inside awips-ade Docker containers (https://hub.docker.com/r/unidata/awips-ade/tags/)
  • New set of colormaps ported from Matplotlib
  • Native decoding of PNG-compressed AREA and GINI imagery (FNEXRAD and UNIWISC)
  • Removed IFPS server send dialogs from GFE perspective.
  • Support for NationalBlend, HIRLAM, more complete HRRRX parameters
  • Distributed computing support for ingest nodes writing data to a remote database/request instance (read more at http://unidata.github.io/awips2/edex/distributed-computing/)
    • yum groupinstall awips2-ingest (does not install postgresql, PyPIES/hdf5, database RPMs)
    • yum groupinstall awips2-database (does not install LDM, ingest, ingestGrib)
  • Corresponding edex start options:
    • edex start ingest
    • edex start database
  • Fix for long request times to fill colormap editor right-click menu, which now displays only your own USER-level localization colormap edits
  • Removed NCEP EDEX data decoders (rpm awips2-edex-ncep) from build and install (this does not affect the common/viz plugins or the NCP)
  • Significant build reorganization for continuous integration on el6 and el7, including documenting and organization all package dependencies.
  • Menu and bundle updates for WPC QPF/QPE grids
  • qpid message broker update from 0.32->6.1.4
  • awips2-edex-\ RPMs consolidated into the existing awips2-edex-dataplugins package (rather than installing awips2-edex-binlightning, awips2-edex-bufr, awips2-edex-grid, etc.)
  • Removed bundled netCDF packages to avoid conflict with epel repositories.
  • Removal of unused AWIPS1, Hydro, RadarServer components
  • awips2-httpd-pypies update to 2.4.23
  • postgresql/psql update to 9.5.8
  • matplotlib update to 1.5.3
  • numpy update to 1.9.3
  • cython update to 0.27.2
  • shapely update to 1.6.2
  • python-qpid update to 1.36.0
  • dateutil update to 2.6.1
  • python-scientific update to 2.8.1
  • python-tables update to 3.4.2
  • Removed unused python modules (nose, scipy, pupynere, pwm)
  • The script qpidNotify.py has been added to /awips2/edex/bin and is available in $PATH for non-root users on an AWIPS server.
  • The EDEX service manager application (command 'edex') has been moved from /awips2/tools/bin to /awips2/edex/bin (should be present with updated /etc/profile.d/awips2.sh from packages awips2)
  • AWIPS Development Environment (ADE) Docker images have been published for CentOS 6 and 7 systems: https://hub.docker.com/r/unidata/awips-ade/tags/
