Project Description

Using the SDM, create distribution maps for 700 species of butterflies using iNaturalist data

  • Species list:

  • For each species, get all observations (data) for all years

  • For each species, create 13 sets:

    • Everything (all months for all years)

    • Each month (for all years)

  • Run SDM on each dataset (13 per species)

    • Clients’ SDM generates a raster and image

  • Document the process and steps such that it is reproducible.

  • Results:

    • Table of number of records retrieved for each species

      • Total for all years
      • Broken down by month
    • Through Jupyter Notebook: Client types in one or more species names and SDM maps are displayed in that Notebook

Project Update (10/26)

Each team will give a 5 minute stand up report on progress at the beginning of class.

Project Deliverables (Due 10/31)

Teams:  5-6 people per team

Due: 10/31

Class Presentation: In class (10/31)Remember: Be professional in your work

Group Report: (wiki)

  • Results:

    • Description of results

    • Where to find results

    • Use a Jupyter Notebook that lets our clients search for species and retrieve SDMs

    • Make sure to highlight any gotchas!

  • Project Plan/Project timeline:

    • List the milestones and deliverables

    • Who did what on the project

    • Can be shown as a chart:

  • Benchmarking:

Document and explain

    • How long it took to run the full dataset:

    • Software installation

    • Data Staging

    • Data Processing

    • Workflow monitoring

    • Visualization of results

    • Results deposition

  • Presentation:

    • Link to download/access presentation

  • Post-mortem analysis (subpage):

    • What worked well

    • What didn't work well

    • What you would do differently

Teammate Evaluations:

Individual Reports: (D2L)

  • What is container technology? Give two real-world examples of how it is being used with links to the uses.

  • Take two linux command line commands and describe what they do.  Find the author of one of these commands and write their bio.

  • Calculate how much it would cost to do the following in AWS:

    • You have a 10 terabyte dataset.

    • Processing 1 gigabyte of data takes 1 hour and produces 100 megabytes of output

    • The input data can be split and run in parallel with no dependencies (you can split the input data any way you wish).

    • Remember to account for costs to move data into and out of AWS.

    • Use AWS Simple Monthly Calculator and include screen shots of configuration and costs:

  • Describe two computational workflows:  one that works well on a high performance computer and one that works well in a distributed/high throughput computer.

  • Describe two best practices for scientific computing and point out how they were used for your midterm.

  • No labels
