If you're in Boulder next Wednesday please consider joining us for our 
March meeting of the Boulder Earth and Space Science Informatics Group. 
  Our speaker will be Doug Lindholm from LASP:

"LaTiS: a data model, an API, a web service AND a floor wax"

LaTiS is a data model, a data analysis API, and a REST-ful web service 
for accessing scientific data via a common interface.

The LaTiS data model provides a scientific domain independent, unifying, 
mathematical foundation for describing data sets that captures the 
functional relationships between parameters. The Scala implementation of 
this model provides an API for reading data directly from their native 
source, the ability to compute with high level abstractions appropriate 
for the task at hand, and options for filtering, transforming, and 
writing data in various formats.

This talk will discuss how these capabilities are used to enable a 
modular web service framework that can easily be installed and 
configured by a data provider, and that allows users to dynamically 
reformat a data set, including its time representation, storage format, 
missing values, etc.

This talk will be a preview (i.e. beta release) of the talk I will give 
at UCAR Software Engineering Assembly Conference in April.

Complete details are available at the web site, 

Come on by!
