Wrap Up

1. Action items from last call reviewed.

2. Tools workgroup outline: tools in order of 'closest to final version':

  • ERT - needs additional metadata, and minor UI modifications. v2 GIS metadata selection.
  • MPE - v1 ready to go with addition of 2008 plots. v2 will include metadata enhanced selection, and UI mods.
  • Model-to-obs - v1 will have 2008b, 2011a,b data pairings from site-comp.f. Zac moved 2011 parings to viking during call. v2 could incorporate additional chart types (e.g. 5 main plot types from MPE, and others per Tools workgroup feedback). Major benefit is site specific comparisons that may not be available in MPE tool or reports.
  • SA tool - need to check with ENVIRON re development timeline and role of DW team.
  • GIS tools - Short(er) term - Dustin working on geographic selection for ERT and other tools. Longer term - model I/O spatial layers with obs overlays.
