Rust crates for managing and disseminating our glacier research data. These data include:
- Status information from the ATLAS system, a remote LiDAR scanner located at the Helheim Glacier in southeast Greenland.
- Remote camera images from cameras located all around the world, in particular in Alaska and Greenland.
These data are transmitted from remote sites to host servers via satellite connections.
The glacio crate provides a Rust API for accessing and inspecting these remote data, once they're on our host systems. The glacio-http crate uses the Rust API to create an HTTP API (using iron). Finally, glacio-bin provides an executable that can be used to start the HTTP API or query the entire glacier data system.
