Project 301 is investigating techniques that will facilitate
researchers' ability to find meaning in large and often disparate
data samples. Currently, the project has developed a stand-alone
prototype tool that allows researchers to manipulate climate and
ice-core data. The tool is highly responsive and allows users to
re-sample and display the data very quickly. The graphs that are
created can then be exported as journal quality images as SVG,
EPS, or PDF.
The project name, P301, is based on the departments that are
involved with the project. An acronym for The Computer Science
Department and The Climate Change Institute at the University of
Maine might be CCCI. The acronym read as Roman numerals is 301;
hence, the project is called P301.
The main goal of the project is to make it easier for
researchers to discover meaning in data. From a Computer Science
aspect, this leads to a number of areas that are being
investigated, such as:
of P301dx has been released. This release contains bug fixes and other enhancements.
