The Waypoint Planning Tool enables scientists to develop flight plans

Airborne real time observations are a major component of NASA’s Earth Science research and satellite ground validation studies. For mission scientists, planning a research aircraft mission within the context of meeting the science objectives is a complex task because it requires real time...

Spyglass logo

The Spyglass tool is designed to help analysts explore very large collections of unstructured text documents. Spyglass uses a domain ontology to index documents and provides retrieval and visualization services based on the ontology and the resulting index. The ontology based approach allows...

HyDRO in use at GHRC

HyDRO (the Hydrologic Data search, Retrieval, and Order system) allows users to search the GHRC database for specific data sets. HyDRO was developed to make the tasks of locating and selecting candidate GHRC data sets easier and more intuitive for the end user. HyDRO can provide the user with a...

Provenance Tools help with the collection and display of data products

Several provenance collection and display tools have resulted from provenance research at ITSC in conjunction with the AMSR-E SIPS.The Earth science Library for Processing History (ELPH) is a provenance collection software library developed in Perl for integration into the SIPS...
