I 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.

In my spare time I’ve continued working on an idea that I started when I worked for NOAA aboard the NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer.

Recently 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.

This 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.
