Online extraction, analysis and visualisation of SeaDataNet and Argo data

About this webinar


ODV (Ocean Data View) is a widely used software package for the analysis, exploration and visualization of oceanographic and other environmental data with almost 100,000 registrations since the 1990’s and more than 10,000 active users. ODV has been further developed as part of the EU supported activities of SeaDataNet, the pan-European infrastructure for marine and ocean data management. To make working with web-based large community datasets easier, an online version of the ODV software called webODV has been developed, which provides typical ODV functionality in form of web services. webODV has been deployed in the cloud in the framework of the EU EGI-ACE project, which seeks to promote scientific analytical cloud services in support of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) initiative.

In webinar, you will be able to learn about the webODV Explorer and Extractor components in combination with the large validated Temperature & Salinity data collections as provided by SeaDataNet and and EuroArgo – Argo. Moreover, you will be informed how you will be able to register yourself as a user of webODV for trying out and performing analytics, extractions, and visualisations.
