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

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) to access GDP analysis functionality. The GDP is now acessible through an interactive web page, which is another system to learn and data formats to navigate.

In kind funding and work leveraged

Interaction with DMWG
