Pangeo Tutorial Materials
This repository tutorial materials for half-day workshops that showcase Pangeo JupyterHub deployments. The
notebooks directory has Jupyter notebooks that illustrate key python libraries including geopandas, xarray, dask, and intake. You can run these notebooks interactively on BinderHub services like MyBinder.org. Note that these are emphermal computing environments on Public infrastructure, so you may lose work, and don't store passwords!
Notebooks in subfolders
google-cloud combine all these Python libraries and use cluster configurations and datasets stored on Google Cloud (GCP) or Amazon Cloud (AWS). The following binder links launch a predefined computational environment in different Cloud data centers, allowing us to upload our computation rather than download data:

- About Pangeo: Pangeo is a community effort for big data in the geosciences using Python. A key component of the Pangeo effort is the improved integration of Xarray and Dask to enable analysis of very large datasets.
- About Jupyter: Project Jupyter exists to develop open-source software, open-standards, and services for interactive computing across dozens of programming languages. The Jupyter Notebook is an open-source web application that allows you to create and share documents that contain live code, equations, visualizations and narrative text. Uses include: data cleaning and transformation, numerical simulation, statistical modeling, data visualization, machine learning, and much more.
- About Xarray: Xarray is an open source project and Python package that aims to bring the labeled data power of pandas to the physical sciences, by providing N-dimensional variants of the core pandas data structures.
- About Dask: Dask is a flexible parallel computing library for analytic computing.
- About Geopandas: Geopandas is a library to facilitate analysis of geospatial vector data
- About Intake: Intake is a cataloging system designed to "Take the pain out of data access and distribution"

At its core, Pangeo is a community effort built around open-source software. As such, the credit for the developments of the software described here belongs with the community that created it.
Elements of this tutorial were taken from the xarray, Dask, Cartopy, Holoviews, and Geoviews documentation. Some pieces of text in the xarray portion of the tutorial were adapted from Hoyer and Hamman (2016).
Pangeo is supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF) via the EarthCube Program and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration via the ACCESS Program. NCAR is separately supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF).
