GPM Ground Validation Field Campaigns: Collaboration and Data Management Tools


The Global Hydrology Resource Center DAAC provides collaboration and data management tools for field campaigns, including for NASA's GPM Ground Validation program.  This poster highlights the most recent GPM GV field campaign portal, for the Iowa Flood Studies (IFloodS) campaign, that just ended on June 30, 2013.  In addition to tools for sharing data and information, instrument status, daily plans and weather forecasts, the portal provided map-based visualization of real-time data from operational radars, satellites, stream and rain gauges, as well as from the suite of ground instruments managed by the IFloodS team.  The portal was built on the ORION situational awareness framework developed by the University of Alabama in Huntsville's Information Technology and Systems Center (ITSC).

The GHRC is a NASA Earth Science Data Center, and is a partnership between NASA MSFC's Earth Science Office and UAH ITSC.
