Quick-looks database

From Nanuna internal
Jump to: navigation, search

The Quick-Looks database contains near real-time data visualizations that are produced automatically and stored on nanuna. The Quick-Looks are useful for getting an overview or "quick look" of the data that is being collected, but due to its near real-time nature the data is unofficial and of unknown quality.

Once data is released one can obtain the official full data-set from any instrument available, and along with that, a statement about the data quality from the ARM archive.

As of April 18, 2012 the Quick-Looks database contained 827,937 entries.



The Barrows Quick-Looks database contains entries from 2/15/1998 - present time.

How to download site images

Both the Atqasuk and the Barrow datastreams offer images from Axis webcams with integrated GNU/Linux servers: nsatwrcamC1 and iopcam for Barrow, and nsatwrcamC2 for Atqasuk. For most of the available time of active operation, a picture was or is transmitted and archived every hour. The quicklooks page provides an interface to view and download them. Read the detailed description on the Quick-Looks Image Download HOWTO page.
