ABSTRACT


In the physical sciences, the observation and analysis of

environmental readings, such as wind speed, sap flow,

atmospheric pressure, temperature, and precipitation,

benefit greatly from real-time visualization as they allow

environmental scientists to create faster actionable

intelligence. However, the scarcity of easily accessible

and customizable real-time visualization software often

creates logistical problems for researchers focused in

environmental sciences. The goal of this paper is to

present an alternative approach, based on usability

and open source software, for the Nevada Research

Data Center (NRDC) to visualize environmental data

in near-real time and confirm its viability for usage

with other research projects of similar size. This approach

involves creating an open-source near-real time

interface to act as middle-ware between the NRDC’s

data repository and CHORDS, a cloud-hosted data

visualization package. While this interface is primarily

being built for the NRDC, there is an emphasis on

tooling it to be as generalized and generic as possible.
