Confluence Retirement

In an effort to consolidate USGS hosted Wikis, myUSGS’ Confluence service is scheduled for retirement on January 27th, 2023. The official USGS Wiki and collaboration space is now SharePoint. Please migrate existing spaces and content to the SharePoint platform and remove it from Confluence at your earliest convenience. If you need any additional information or have any concerns about this change, please contact Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

A related Python tool for downloading data from the internet and posting on ScienceBase using ASH3D as an example is available on Gitlab GitLab for USGS users.

Next steps for this project include finalizing cloud hosting service deployment and configuration settings, checking load balancing and quantifying performance, exploring set-up of multiple Geoserver instances in the cloud, evaluating load balancing technologies (e.g., Cloudfront), and ensuring all workflows are possible using a SB Python library. 


See the meeting recording for demonstration of the tool. You may note the model run-time interaction during the demo. You'll also see that PRMS is in Fortran, but is being run in Python. Code for this project is available on GitlabGitHub.
