Oceanography Circulatory model for OSSIM using PyOSSIM and PlanetSasha


The main idea is to develop an intuitive tool to read-process-display online data sources, available in netcdf format. The tool will be able to decode the “get capabilities” of dataservices like Thredds, allow variables selection and execute spatio temporal queries on netcdf resources. All processing will be done in python using pyossim (GSoC-2011/2012) and Necdf4, while PlanetSasha (GSoC 2009) and PyGRASS (GSoC-2012) will be used to develop the user interface and imporove the OSSIMPlanet-GRASS comunication. The output generated is sent to OSSIMPlanet for visualization. The GUI will consist of a tool for spatio/temporal query and data selection and a set of controllers to add/remove data from the ossimplanet canvas including the ability to start/stop animation of time series of raster data. As test-bed, the spatio-temporal data from the ocean circulatory model “FVCOM” can be used (data publicy available at : USGS Thredds sevice )
