Data Utilization Software Tools for Interactive Use of the AUC (DUST-1)

A. Nölle, F. Pätzold, W. Mett, G.K. Hartmann, P. Behr 

DUST Manual (Deutsch/English)    DUST-1 Manual (pdf-document, 630 KB).

The satellite data product specifications requested by scientists, public authorities, schools, commercial users or the media are as varied as these groups themselves. However, data centers must concentrate on the operational generation of only a few selected data products, since their processing is elaborate and complex.
This provided the motivation to develop easy-to-use software which takes into account user specifications collected over a long period of time, to combine it with data selected from the archives of the ATMOS User Center (AUC). 
DUST-1 focuses on providing software for processing level 3 data available at the AUC from the GOME (Global Ozone Monitoring Experiment), TOMS (Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer), and MAS (Millimeter Wave Atmospheric Sounder) instruments.  A calendat tool makes it easy to search for desired data sets on the CD-ROM. 
The software functionality includes visualization, animation, and mathematical/statistical processing of the data sets. Thus GOME and TOMS total ozone column densities can be displayed in either epicylindrical or spherical projections. It is possible to zoom into the projection or to enlarge spatially defined excerpts, whereby the cursor shows the location (lat/long) and the Dobson Units in a special window. The spherical projection can be rotated in any direction. For MAS data, which supplies the altitude profiles of water vapour and ozone, the software offers in addition to the zoom and excerpting functions the possibility of directly viewing the profile at a desired altitude, or of examining the entire profiles by scanning through the altitude intervals.
The DUST-1 CD-ROM is the result of a collaboration between DFD-DLR (Oberpfaffenhofen), Max-Planck-Institut für Aeronomie (Katlenburg-Lindau), and Science-Softline.

DUST-1 is bilingual (german/english). For detailed software description see the DUST-1 Manual.

Data Utilization Software Tools (DUST-2)

G. K. Hartmann, A. Nölle, M. L. Richards, R. Leitinger

The expected strong increase of atmospheric data will be a great challenge for all related data base systems. Graphical tools providing an obvious and intuitive interface to the data, both numerical and textual get increasingly important for data bases, proportional to the magnitude of the data flux. They assist in exploring, selecting from, and searching the database. They have been combined and investigated in context with a pilot project for the validation of atmospheric data, on behalf of the Max-Planck-Institut für Aeronomie in Katlenburg-Lindau, Germany.

Here, classical and modern documentation methods – comprising data classification, storage and retrieval – and validation methods for selected data and texts of the Earth’s atmosphere can be interactively graphically linked and the results displayed. This is accompanied by some basic articles and a glossary in English and German. The software functionality includes visualization, animation and mathematical statistical processing and allows to reveal ozone trends or to ascertain differences between data sets.

DUST-2 CD-ROM is a result of the above mentioned pilot project, and is intended to show the synergy of the graphical linkage between relevant texts and data and should help to improve the present unsatisfactorily availability of qualified filtered, direct useable information. In this context two (new) information processing methods were for the first time very successfully tested with data and texts from the Earth’s atmosphere, i.e. with ozone data and texts. The first is based on the method of Formal Concept Analysis (FCA), the second on document similarity measures and self organising maps. All this should further initiate and support related learning processes.

DUST-2 combines three independent stand alone applications (DUST, Toscana, SOMAccess) via an HTML interface
.
A sample of processing and visualization of ozone data is given as view graph.

The Datatable gives an overview about the data stored on DUST-2.
