CHORDS Portal: Seamless Real-Time Data Streaming

CHORDS is a real-time data service for the geosciences that provides an easy-to-use system to acquire, navigate, and distribute real-time data via cloud services and the Internet. CHORDS aims to lower the barrier to these services, especially for small instrument teams, and broaden access to real-time data for the geosciences community.

3D Printed Automated Weather Station (PAWS)

Accurate and reliable real-time monitoring and dissemination of observations of surface weather conditions is critical for a variety of societal applications.

The US National Weather Service (NWS) International Activities Office (IAO) in partnership with University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR)/National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA) has started an initiative to develop and deploy low-cost weather instrumentation in sparsely observed regions of the world.

Instrumentation is being designed using innovative new technologies such as 3D printers, Raspberry Pi computing systems, and wireless communications.

Decolonizing data

While this article focuses on public health, the discussion of decolonizing data is valuable: Decolonizing data is where "the community itself is the one determining what is the information they want us to gather. Why are we gathering it? Who's interpreting it? And are we interpreting it in a way that truly serves our communities? Decolonizing data is about controlling our own story, and making decisions based on what is best for our people. That hasn't been done in data before, and that's what's shifting and changing."

MathJax: A JavaScript display engine for mathematics that works in all browsers

The MathJax Consortium is a joint venture of the American Mathematical Society (AMS) and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) to advance mathematical and scientific content on the web.

Core Goals

The core of the MathJax project is the development of its state-of-the-art, open source, JavaScript platform for display of mathematics. Our key design goals are

  • high-quality display of mathematics notation in all browsers
  • no special browser setup required
  • support for LaTeX, MathML and other equation markup directly in the HTML source.
  • an extensible, modular design with a rich API for easy integration into web applications.
  • support for accessibility, copy and paste and other rich functionality
  • interoperability with other applications and math-aware search.
