Apache Open Climate Workbench is an effort to develop software that performs climate model evaluation using model outputs from a variety of different sources (the Earth System Grid Federation, the Coordinated Regional Downscaling Experiment, the U.S. National Climate Assessment and the North American Regional Climate Change Assessment Program) and temporal/spatial scales with remote sensing data from NASA, NOAA and other agencies. The toolkit includes capabilities for rebinning, metrics computation and visualization. For additional project information, please check the project website.
The project's wiki is the best location for help and project information. New users should check out the Getting Started and Easy OCW pages for help getting the necessary dependencies installed. If you would prefer to have an isolated environment set up in a virtual machine you should read the OCW VM documentation. It will help you get up and running quickly with a fresh VM image for OCW work.
There are a number of examples in the examples directory to help users get started with the toolkit API. If you have questions, the best way to get help is to email the project mailing lists which can be found on the project's community page.
OCW always welcomes pull request. Please check the Developer Area on the wiki for additional information on how to contribute. The project's JIRA is a great place to start looking for issues to solve. Make sure to stop by the mailing lists and introduce yourself as well!
