A CAVE GFE Data Mining Procedure
Updated April 2019
Note, the FEAT tool depends on the Python AWIPS Data Access Framework (DAF) to operate properly.
In AWIPS Build 18.X, the DAF is to work as expected.
(Forecast and Practice database grids were returned from the DAF; unfortunately they were not discernible in earlier versions of the DAF. Sorry for the delay.)
Download the python software package from the
Run the script, featInstall.csh to install software on an AWIPS CAVE px2 system.
This step will take well a few minutes. There is no config file for the GUI portion.
Part A, execute command (below) to run the data mining software.
Either add this command, found in file a2SITEpx2cron, to 'gfecron' or, simply run at the command line to generate data for FEAT. For ongoing use, add command to a scheduled cron process.
GenerateEvents.py (top level script):
- This code generates Event Data files usually via cron, outside of CAVE.
import AwarenessEvents, FcstEventConfig, FcstEventDataAccess as fda, EditAreasUtilities.py
- This is the python data constructor that accesses data to write, then read the FEAT data files.
Also used with the CAVE GUI code.
