The true power of the Weather Archive is the server-side software that manages and displays the requested imagery. It is a highly-efficient geoinformatics engine built to take advantage of geoscience standards and convecntions. It is light enough to run on a Raspberry Pi 2, yet powerful enough to let the user decide exactly what plots they wish to create.
A demonstration of the capabilities of the geoinformatics engine that powers the Weather Archive, this project allows users to analyze irregular high-resolution climate model data over the Middle East. It was created at the request of an NCAR scientist.
The Weather Forecaster is a Weather Archive project with a specific focus on weather and seasonal climate models over North America. It brings in high-resolution datasets such as the High Resolution Rapid Refresh (HRRR) model and allows users to assess and analyze forecasts and trends with a specialized suite of tools such as the forecast trajectory tool.
The Weather Archive is a web-based interactive tool for exploring "Big Data" in the cloud. It brings together petabytes of data holdings at NASA and NOAA data centers across the country into a single platform that lets the user probe and compare data in real time using a modern web browser.
