Two OpenVDM installations in just under 4 months!

PoweredByOpenVDM_LogoI just returned from Florida having completed the installation of OpenVDM aboard the E/V Nautilus.  This was the second OpenVDM installation aboard a research vessel in the 4 short months that OpenVDM has been available for use.  I couldn’t be happier with how things are moving forward.

Open Vessel Data Management

PoweredByOpenVDM_LogoIn my spare time I’ve continued working on an idea that I started when I worked for NOAA aboard the NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer.  I still have a long ways to go but I feel it’s reach a point where I can introduce the project and open the floor for discussion/feedback from the community.

Using a Raspberry Pi Computer to Build Cheap Digital Signage

Raspi_Colour_RRecently I wrote about the new dashboard interface for viewing data collected aboard the Okeanos Explorer.  I think it’s a great way to get a quick snapshot as to the health of the data collection systems aboard the vessel.  However it still requires having a browser open.  Tying up a computer just to look at a webpage is kinda a waste… unless that computer fits in the palm of your hand and cost ~$40.00.

Dashboard Interface for Oceanographic Vessel Datasets

2010-Porsche-911-Targa-4S-gauge-cluster-465x236This post is a rework of a poster I worked on for the 2012 UNOLS RVTEC meeting. It’s about the development of a dashboard-style interface that helps scientists and technicians  monitoring sensor health and manage data collection aboard oceanographic research vessels.  It’s a system that is proving extremely helpful aboard the NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer and will hopefully help the R/V Falkor operated by the Schmidt Ocean Institute (SOI) which recently received the full Okeanos-style data management treatment.

With the permission of OER, I have posted a working demo of the dashboard based on data collected from EX1206.
