I-GUIDE VCO: The I-GUIDE Cyberinfrastructure Platform for enabling integrative discovery

Recorded VCO

The I-GUIDE Cyberinfrastructure Platform for enabling integrative discovery

Date: Thursday, February 28, 2023   Time: 12:00 pm (Central Time)

The I-GUIDE platform is designed to harness the vast, diverse, and distributed geospatial data at different spatial and temporal scales. This makes such data broadly accessible and usable to convergence research and education, enabled by cutting-edge CyberGIS and cyberinfrastructure. The platform leverages several existing capabilities including services for simplifying access to high-performance computing (HPC) resources, the US national HPC infrastructure, reusable geospatial workflow building blocks, and scalable, interactive computing environments to provide users with a web-based platform to carry out research and education workflows. The platform has been adopted by two I-GUIDE convergent science use cases to address their data wrangling challenges and resource-intensive computation needs.
In this virtual consulting office (VCO), we will provide an overview of the architecture and capabilities of the I-GUIDE platform that enable research workflows to be executed and reproduced. We will also demonstrate two example workflows from the two convergent science use cases and provide information on how users can begin to use the I-GUIDE platform for their own research.




Rajesh Kalyanam

Research Scientist
Scientific Solutions Group at the Rosen Center for Advanced Computing (RCAC), Purdue University

He leads and works on several federally funded projects that are at the intersection of advanced computing and science and engineering. Rajesh also has over 15 years of experience as a full stack application developer and has worked on science gateway projects for a variety of domains including geosciences, cybersecurity, communication, and anthropology. Rajesh currently serves as CoPI on five NSF-funded grants including Anvil, a Category I capacity HPC system funded by the NSF in 2020 and operated by RCAC. He is the Software Architect for the GeoEDF workflow engine that is leveraged in the I-GUIDE platform.
