OPS

OpenPolarServer Spatial Data Infrastructure

About

The OpenPolarServer (OPS) is a complete spatial data infrastructure (SDI) built for The Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets (CReSIS) at The University of Kansas. The SDI is a complete Linux server created using vagrant provisioning and Oracle VirtualBox. The server includes the following components:

  • Apache HTTPD and Apache Tomcat6
  • GeoServer Web Mapping Server
  • PostgreSQL + PostGIS Spatial Database
  • Django Web Framework
  • ExtJS + GeoEXT + OpenLayers GeoPortal web application
  • Optional CRON and SSMTP configuration

To cite usage of the Open Polar Server please use the following:

CReSIS. 2023. Open Polar Server [computer software], Lawrence,  Kansas, USA. Retrieved from https://github.com/CReSIS/.

To acknowledge the use of the CReSIS Toolbox, please note Kansas, NSF and NASA contributions. For example:

We acknowledge the use of the CReSIS Open Polar Server from CReSIS generated with support from the University of Kansas, NASA Operation IceBridge grant NNX16AH54G, and NSF grants ICER-2126503.

Requirements

A Centos 7 Linux server or virtual machine. We test the setup using Oracle VirtualBox at https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads.

Provisioned Virtual Machines are available at: https://data.cresis.ku.edu/data/temp/ct/ops/

Installation

On a clean centos 7.9 VM:

yum install -y git
git clone https://github.com/cresis/ops.git /opt/ops
cd /opt/ops

sh conf/provisions.sh

# Answer prompts and watch for errors
# At the half-way point, a reboot is required. After the reboot, resume the script:
cd /opt/ops
sh conf/provisions.sh

After install, edit /var/django/ops/ops/settings.py and add the URL/IP that points to the VM to the ALLOWED_HOSTS list.

Endpoints

Assuming the VM's IP is 192.168.111.222:

192.168.111.222: The geoportal for accessing OPS

192.168.111.222/git: A local Gitlab server with copies of a few OPS-related repos

192.168.111.222/geoserver: The geoserver which hosts map data

Adding CReSIS data to the system

This can be done by placing CReSIS "data packs" into the /data/postgresql/ directory. Information on how and where to get these data packs can be found here.
