The final sample workflow I used as the case study is GPP long-term temporal mean calculation. It is a simple workflow which only involves two major modules in the IMIF package: Regrid and LongTermTemporalMean. However, the same principle applies to larger and more complex workflows.
After a success execution of the workflow, there will be a result image shown in the web interface. Also, there is a download link pointing to he result NetCDF file. User can both see the visualization of the result and download the result. This is a quite flexible framework. I believe many Vistrials workflows can be put online using similar way.
The server setup is the last thing on my things to do list for this summer intern. Finishing it means I’ve finished all the tasks. As a wrap up, I reorganized all the outputs from this summer intern and wrote a description for each work I’ve done. Here is a list of the achievements I’ve made this summer:
- Develope the data processing and analysis modules for model data inter comparison package (IMIF pakcage)
- Integrate the modules I developed with the visualization modules
- Build a set of sample scientific workflows that conduct data summary and model comparison
- Integrate IMIF package with DataONE cyber-infrastructure
- Put the package online so that users can be run it though a web interface
This list concludes my summer intern. I really like this great opportunity because I could work with so many awesome people during this summer, including my dear mentors Bob and Yaxing in ORNL, DataONE post-doc Aritra and other DataONE people (especially Rebecca). I’m looking forward to the all-hands meeting in October.
