XSEDE Startup Allocation Approved

Good news!  

XSEDE has approved the Startup Allocation for the GISandbox.  We are working hard to get GISandbox up and running with the latest commercial and open source software. This allocation grants GISandbox users access to the following supercomputers and cloud resources:

1. Jetstream (Indiana University / Texas Advanced Computing Center)


Jetstream will host our Virtual Machine running JupyterHub, which will serve as the primary interface for GISandbox users.

2. Bridges (Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center)


Bridges will be a primary compute resource, which is designed for non-traditional high-performance computing (HPC) users like the GIScience community.

3. Comet (San Diego Supercomputing Center)


Comet will be another primary compute resource, which is also designed for non-traditional (HPC) users. As SDSC likes to say "HPC for the 99 percent".

Interested?

If you are interested in using the GISandbox as a pilot user then please:
  1. Email Eric Shook (eshook@umn.edu) with a short description of your research or teaching project, or 
  2. Post a comment below with your project description and contact information and we will follow up with you.  
We have several pilot projects lined up already so if you want to be at the cutting-edge of the GIScience and geospatial computing community, then please let us know.  

We will be posting progress updates as we move forward in getting GISandbox operational so check back.

I'm excited to share the ArcGIS for XSEDE webinar hosted by the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) and Esri (Full title: An Overview of Esri Cloud and Big Data Spatial Analytics Offerings Available to XSEDE ). We had over 70 participants join the webinar and I had many requests for the recording.  Please share the presentation with anyone who might be interested.

GISandbox live

The GISandbox is ready for users. After over a year of work and preparation the GISandbox is transitioning from prototype to production. We would like to acknowledge the NSF-supported Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) Extended Collaborative Support Services (ECSS) team including Davide Del Vento, Andrea Zonca, and Jun Wang as well as the Science Gateway Community Institute (SGCI) including Mark Krenz. Without their dedication and expertise the GISandbox would still be a wish rather than a fully functioning gateway. The GISandbox gateway runs a JupyterLab interface with a host of open source packages to enable geospatial research. We are putting the finishing touches on the notebook submit option that enables users to take their Jupyter Notebooks and run them on the Comet and Bridges supercomputers. If you are interested in signing up to be a GISandbox user for geospatial education and research, then please follow the 3 steps below. 1. To sign-in, us
