Webinar Geo4All: Using FOSS4G to analyze large spatio-temporal data sets at NREL
Friday September 29, 2017 12:00 PM Central Mountain Time (6:00 PM GMT)
Using FOSS and FOSS4G to analyze and provide access to large spatio-temporal data sets at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, USA.
Ricardo Oliveira, National Renewable Energy Lab
Large spatio-temporal data sets are a common aspect of the geospatial work carried out at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Golder Colorado USA. Currently, a stack of FOSS/FOSS4G
tools is being used to perform analyses on such data sets. This presentation will explain how a combination of Python and PostgreSQL-PostGIS is allowing researchers to perform complex analyses on terabytes of spatio-temporal data and is also allowing the
general public to access and explore such data sets over the Web.
