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 myusgs@usgs.gov. Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

primary contact/s:

Curtis Price, Rich Signell

Description

Project Topic

Tasks

Resources Required

Major Outcomes

Total Funding Needed

Python and Matlab port of GDP client tools (WPS) w/ hooks for ArcGIS Toolbox

Develop python functions to execute GDP web processing services

Develop python based ArcGIS Toolbox to return GDP data products

~1 month python developer

~1 month Matlab developer

~1 month ArcGIS developer

Travel Funds for two, three-day face to face meetings.

Python scripting tools and ArcGIS toolbox to access GDP web processing services.

Travel $ money for face to face planning and development
~$5k-10k

Funds for contract developer salary
~3 Months FTE

Additional Criteria

  • No ArcGIS or other software required
  • Python 2.5, 2.7 etc

Benefit to FSP/Scientists/Mission Areas

The creation of a python module will allow many commonly-used scientific software tools (ArcGIS, Python, R, Matlab, Microsoft Office)

In kind funding and work leveraged

  • Leverages Geo Data Portal (link etc) to make it easily accessible to scientists through common scientific toolboxes (especially ArcGIS, Excel).

Interaction with DMWG

Review of software distribution for appropriate metadata, policy implications

Deliverable and its Measurable Benefit
