iSENSE Project Site

iSENSE is an online system that promotes collaborative scientific analysis by providing accessible ways to collect, contribute, and visualize data. iSENSE users create projects to which they can contribute data. After contributing data to projects in the form of data sets, users can analyze their data using multiple visualization tools. The following tutorials explain how to create projects, contribute data to projects in the form of data sets, and visualize data.


Installing the iSense Site

Install like any Ruby on Rails application.

Tested with Ruby 2.3.0, Passenger, Apache, and PostgreSQL.

Depends on imagemagick and a “zip” archiver.

The server's hostname must be set to the correct fully qualified domain name for AJAX elements of the site to function.
