Distributed, organized collections of digital material
"The need for convenient access to historical data was articulated by the NSF review panel"
Case studies delivers access to historical data, and provides accompanying educational material.
The format and concept for case study delivery can hopefully be translated to efforts in near real-time delivery of
disparate data sources.
Current Library Catalog
There are now forty-four (44)
case studies available
Community input has indicated a desire for continuation of these case studies, and
Unidata is evaluating these desires with existing resources for continuation of the
case study effort in some form. Options include working in conjunction with the
THREDDS project to provide important connections to the digital libraries and
educational curriculum materials. The Unidata Program Center needs to evaluate these
desires with our resources to see how or if the case study project will continue.
Options include creating case studies for the IDV, case studies that are compatible
with GIS systems, global considerations, etc.
In preparation for this possible transition, Unidata is creating client/server access, like THREDDS and ADDE to these datasets
via format conversions and possibly a DODS/THREDDS server on the CODIAC system.
These decoders are being installed and tested on the CODIAC system, for use with case study data.
(1 Feb-> 30 April)
- Cases ordered=35
- Data orders=205
- Continue to explore case study data access via OPeNDAP/THREDDS servers.
- COMET is no longer collaborating with the UPC in the case study effort in any financial way, and will not provide
data for future cases. Some DRT/WES case study data sets may be made available from COMET and their associated study
- Please see: WES announcement from COMET
- The UPC continues to encourage our user community for input regarding new case study material,
lab exercises and curriculum development for the cases developed at the UPC, and are awaiting out first Antarctic data
