Ocean Data Science Software Repositories

The following Git repository links are for the OceanColor Science Software (OCSSW) maintained by the Ocean Biology Processing Group and distributed to the public with the SeaDAS package.

The python script install_ocssw.py will install the software on a system using these repositories. This script can also be used to update an existing local copy of the repositories.

The script has an option for local installation, allowing local copies of previously downloaded bundle files to be installed. For this option, the following files are required:

To install these repositories without using the python script:

  • git clone [repository url]
  • Change directories to the local repository
  • cd [local_repository]
    git checkout <version>
Replace <version> with the version you wish to use, e.g. "v7.2"
Note: Several of these repositories are quite large (in excess of 250MB). For these, you may want to use the provided Git bundles:
  1. Download the repository bundle
  2. Clone from the bundle:
  3. git clone -b <version> [bundle]
  4. Change directories to the local repository
  5. cd [local_repository]
  6. Edit the git configuration to point to the remote repository
  7. git remote set-url origin [repository url]
  8. Update the local repository
  9. git pull

The source code for the visualization package is also available

The use of the update feature will only work for repositories that have first been "checked out" using Git. It will not work for an existing copy that was obtained in another manner (e.g. existing software from a version of SeaDAS prior to 7.0 accessed via FTP)

§ A sha256 checksum file is available for the bundles
