Case 1) Rapidly Access and Share Analysis Results
A large number of scientific processes revolve around data analyses, which may be performed on a variety of software products such as Excel, Matlab, visualization tools, etc. The analysis could be carried out on your laptop or on a supercomputer. In either case, you have a set of results and you need to make these results readily and easily available to yourself as well as your collaborators. Ideally, you would like these results to be accessible on any web capable device.
Figure 1: Top row shows visualization of different components for a volcano eruption simulation. Bottom row shows slices of rock data at different depths.
Example: We created a range of visualizations for simulating a volcano eruption. Some of these visualizations (Figure 1) were created on a desktop computer while others were created on a supercomputer. Traditionally, you would download and collect all the results from your different sources onto your computer and, subsequently, upload them for sharing. This process requires two way transfer (download + upload), takes twice the amount of time, deals with arranging files locally and then on the webserver, and then, finally, email the web link to your collaborators (who frequently lose that link).
Now with SeedMe you can upload your content easily by adding two lines of commands to your existing analysis scripts, i.e., on both your desktop computer and the supercomputer. By using the SeedMe command line or programmatic tools, your results can be uploaded as soon as they are created. Naturally, you also have an ability to manually upload this content using a web browser.
