Madagascar - seismics in the cloud

Open source seismic imaging system now available in SageMathCloud.

Sergey Fomel (University of Texas at Austin) reports that the open source Madagascar seismic processing toolset has been ported to the cloud. This has been achieved by leveraging the SageMathCloud, a platform for computational mathematics. SageMathCloud is a component of the Sage project, an open-source mathematics package, the brainchild of William Stein (University of Washington). Sage builds on other open-source libraries such as NumPy, SciPy, MatPlotLib, R and more.

Accessing the SMC is achieved through a Python-based language that provides a rich programming environment that can be been used to install Madagascar. Madagascar itself is now accessible interactively through the Python interface. Fomel’s blog shows how Madagascar can be run interactively, controlled through an IPython notebook hosted on the SMC and using IPython’s new ‘interactive widgets’ feature.
