Is there a November meeting?

Yes there is @RichardScottOZ! The next meeting will be Friday, November 19th at 1pm AEDT. Agenda will posted earlier that week - suggestions very welcome! :slightly_smiling_face:

Note that we will not be holding a meeting in December due to the holiday season, so the November meeting will be the final meeting of 2021.

Thanks! Kirill has been doing some cool things with odc-stac - should talk about that at some stage?

Agenda:

Talk by Damien Irving (CSIRO): PyAOS Survey Results
Background: The Python for Atmosphere and Ocean Science (PyAOS) website and mailing list (https://pyaos.github.io) was established almost a decade ago to provide information and resources to the user community. In order to keep the site up-to-date, the first ever PyAOS census was conducted earlier this year. This presentation will summarise the results of the census, which give a detailed overview of how Python is being used by those working and studying in the weather, ocean and climate sciences.

Next meeting: January 21, 2022 with tentative speaker Kirill on odc-stac!

Full Agenda

Talk by Kirill Kouzoubov @kirill.kzb (Australian-based Software Engineer at Element 84): Introduction to the odc-stac Python package
Background: odc-stac is a new Python package for accessing raster data from STAC catalogs. It is developed under the Open Datacube organization and is based on the datacube python library. Unlike datacube, odc-stac does not require a database for raster metadata storage, making it much easier to get started. Users can connect to publicly available STAC catalogs of open access data like Sentinel-2, Landsat or Digital Earth Australia data products. In this presentation I will walk through some sample notebooks for accessing publicly available STAC catalogs.

Thank you to everyone who attended, and of course to Paige for organizing and reminding me about it at just the right time.

I have put all the presentation files in to this gist. This includes conda python environment if you want to try it out locally.

Rendered version of the sample notebook is in odc-stac documentation:

Though it’s slightly different as it fetches from AWS and from Azure. Click on the launch binder button in the docs to play around without installing all the dependencies.
