EarthKit Workshop

This repository contains a prototype self-paced educational web application. It is based around sets of self-paced lab tutorials that teach workshop participants about various earth science data processing tools. Participants are able to launch a cloud instance pre-loaded with the relevant tools and access remote desktop sessions with their web browser. In order to gather real-world user feedback, the system was used to lead a tutorial session at the UNAVCO 2013 Climate Workshop.


  • api-server: API server that controls authentication, client notification, and EC2 instance management
  • front-end: static HTML frontend
  • ec2-instsances: tooling that needs to be included in the EC2 AMI
