The first online training course on High Performance Data Analytics (HPDA) and Visualisation organised by CMCC and DKRZ in the context of ESiWACE2 was held as four 2-hour sessions on October 6th, 13th, 22nd and on November 3rd.

The topics covered by the training included:

  • Introduction to scientific data challenges, HPDA and analytics workflows
  • Introduction to data visualisation workflows, from post to in-situ
  • Overview of open-source solutions, such as Ophidia for HPDA and ParaView for visualisation
  • Data analytics demo/examples with Ophidia and Python data science libraries
  • Visualisation demo/examples with ParaView

It was very practical and provided examples of real-world applications, as well as demos and hands-on with Ophidia for data analytics and with ParaView for visualisation in the climate and weather domain.

The 2020 online training course had registrations from several European and non-European countries. Additional information about the event and links to the material and recordings are available on the event page.
