A new publication by OpenTopography team members and collaborators from the CyberGIS project and Utah State University was published this month in the proceedings of the XSEDE conference.

Choonhan Youn, Viswanath Nandigam, Minh Phan, David Tarboton, Nancy Wilkins-Diehr, Chaitan Baru, Christopher Crosby, Anand Padmanabhan, and Shaowen Wang. 2014. Leveraging XSEDE HPC resources to address computational challenges with high-resolution topography data. In Proceedings of the 2014 Annual Conference on Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE '14). ACM, New York, NY, USA, , Article 59 , 2 pages. DOI=10.1145/2616498.2616564

Leveraging service-oriented architectures and taking advantage of the high-performance compute resources provided by XSEDE, we have developed standards-based web services to address the challenges associated with processing large volumes of high resolution topography data. These web services make results from community software packages and other cyberinfrastructure-based applications available to the wider earth sciences community via the OpenTopography Facility and the CyberGIS Gateway.
