North Carolina Institute for Climate Studies Publishes New Big Data Project Site

Easy Access to Critical NOAA Data Sets on the Cloud

NOAA’s Big Data Project (BDP) is designed to facilitate public use of key environmental datasets by providing copies of NOAA’s information in the Cloud, allowing users to do analyses of data and extract information without having to transfer and store these massive datasets themselves.

NOAA's Expendable BathyThermograph (XBT) - Innovation for Taking the Ocean's Temperature

An eXpendable BathyThermograph (XBT) is a probe that is dropped from a ship and measures the temperature as it falls through the water. A very thin wire transmits the temperature data to the ship where it is recorded for later analysis. The probe is designed to fall at a known rate, so that the depth of the probe can be inferred from the time since it was launched.

Deepwater Lionfish Trap

Designs for Two New Deepwater Traps Released

NOAA scientists have developed two new trap designs that can target invasive lionfish in deep water and reduce negative effects on native species that are ecologically, recreationally, or commercially important.

ONav and GeoPixel™: Web-Based Navigation for the Collection of Aerial Imagery (US Patent Pending)

Seeking commercial partners for licensing and distribution of this NOAA-developed technology.

NOAA engineers have created a heads-up navigation display for pilots for coastal imagery acquisition, "ONav."  The system combines a real-time Global Positioning System (GPS) and Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) stream along with image collection metadata from the on-board cameras to generate vector overlays the pilots can use to easily navigate, track progress, and ensure full coverage of the survey area greatly improving survey efficiency.
