Help Unidata: Tell Us Your Stories

Map Wall
How has the Unidata Program helped you?

In preparation for a routine review of the Unidata Program by our sponsors at the National Science Foundation, we are collecting anecdotes that illustrate the ways in which Unidata's activities have benefitted you, your research, your teaching, your students, or your community.

If you've got a story that hinges on data you received through the Internet Data Distribution (IDD) system, or on visualizations created with the Integrated Data Viewer (IDV), or your experiences with AWIPS, GEMPAK, or metPy, tell us!

Students

If your THREDDS Data Server is providing data to others in your community, let us know! If you've got a great story about configuring the Local Data Manager to get exactly the data you need, we'd love to hear all about it! Sharing your experiences with Unidata tools, datastreams, workshops, or anything else will help us show how NSF funding is directly benefitting the geoscience community.

Drawing

We're relying on community members to help us tell Unidata's story by telling us their own. As a small thank-you for spending the time to write down your anecdote, we'll enter your name in a drawing for one of four $25 Amazon gift cards. Multiple story submissions are allowed. We'll draw four names at random from the submissions we receive by February 28, 2017.

Comments:

We use the NetCDF package as the basis for our finite element data input and output format Exodus. The quality of the software has been impeccable and the support we receive when we have problems has been prompt and efficient.

We have files ranging from a few bytes up to mutiple terabytes on systems ranging from laptops, desktops, up to several hundred thousand processor clusters including several in the top500 list.

We have been using NetCDF since 1992 and it has met or exceeded our expectations.
