Geoinformatics User Training: Direct Access, Live Access, Subsetting, On-line Analysis, Formats, and Conversions
This session is focused on addressing issues of data access and management for novice to intermediate users who may have unique data applications with abbreviated project timelines. The session will include guided discussions on direct access (downloads), live access (e.g. opendap, thredds), subsetting , on-line analysis (e.g. giovanni), formats, and conversions, with a focus on training required to bring users up-to-speed as quickly as possible. It is the intent of this session to bring together representatives from NASA, NOAA, and USGS Data Centers, NASA’s Applied Sciences’ Capacity Building elements, representatives for the target user groups, and other interested parties to network, discuss, and propose possible solutions to this underrepresented issue.
