Participants will learn how to access GOES-R and JPSS satellite data and use the tools available from the three Cloud Service Providers (CSP): Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, and Amazon Web Services (AWS). Each CSP will present where the data is, how to access the data, and the tools available to process, display, and analyze GOES-R and JPSS satellite data and products. A case study allowing hands-on experience will include investigating a severe weather event using the GOES-R and JPSS satellite data and products on the CSP platforms. At the end of the short course participants will have had an opportunity to access the cloud and use the data, and learn best practices to:
Access/download NOAA GOES-R/JPSS satellite data/products from online data and archives from the three Cloud Service Providers (CSP): Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, and Amazon Web Services (AWS)
Access and understand data files and their file contents
Process and visualize satellite data while applying cloud native tooling
The full-day course will consist of presentations from GEO and LEO Program Offices, the three Cloud Service Providers and NOAA/NESDIS SME’s to demonstrate what data and products are available, how to locate, access and use via the tools available through each CSP. Participants will have an opportunity to access the cloud and use the data.
During the last presentation, participants will have the opportunity to visualize a data file of their choosing using Jupyter Notebooks. The training will provide all needed code and data files that will be used during the training. To participate in this exercise, it is recommended to have a basic familiarity with programming languages as this presentation will be conducted in Python using Jupyter notebooks. Those who do not have the programming languages familiarity can still observe and learn.
