The Reading e-Science Centre is a group of researchers and technologists within the Department of Meteorology at the University of Reading. We aim to make environmental data more useful and accessible by researching, developing and applying advanced computing techniques.
ReSC's ncWMS software is used by research institutes, operational forecasting agencies and industry to visualize large multidimensional datasets quickly and easily on the web.
ReSC provides an Access Grid facility for enabling videoconferencing and data-sharing. We are also developing the use of sophisticated blogging tools to enable collaboration in the BlogMyData project.
We provide access to many different kinds of computing facilities, including a campus Condor pool and a compute cluster. We can also provide advice on using national facilities such as the UK National Grid Service.
