TerraMagnetoScope The Global Sensor Network Analysis Tool

Site News

Below is news and site update information for the TerraMagnetoScope and GON Network [help][faq]

Updates [Last Site Modification: 20 February 2008]

  • 20 Feb 2008
    We'll soon have the NEW Magnetic Sensors available as soon as we finish working out a few bugs! Will be great as participants will NOT have to bury their sensor deeply into the ground to protect it from swinging temps. 
  • 18 July 2007
    We are working towards adding the new NASA Stereo Satellite feeds to the site as new vector feeds!  Good things! 
  • 8 July 2007
    We are completely re-designing the Network sensor suite and the network sensors themselves to add 1 NanoTesla sensitivity. Also, we will be adding a series of radio telescopes as input data vectors soon! So things may be up and down over the summer, I apologize for this but it's necessary to add the new vectors.
  •  20 January 2007
    All Fixed now! the sensor network is apparently very vulnerable to certain specific network path's being interrupted, I will build in some backup redundant paths to limit this in the future.
  • 8 January 2007
    We are experiencing problems with the data feeds; please be patient until we can get the network outage fixed. I will update as soon as the situation changes.
  • 10 August 2006
    Updated the GRSSAL to allow the user the ability to specify date-time range. I will continue to improve the Intuitive nature of the GRSSAL while searching for more real-time scientific data feeds.
  • 15 July 2006
    In the spirit of giving back some to the Perl Community AND hopefully enable the export of the aggregation/limn engine as a service I am working on a pure Perl Module to encompass the functions and provide a semi-object oriented access model for external service connectivity.
  • 10 July 2006
    Beta GRSSAL open for all users, still fixing many small glitches and bugs... no show stoppers at this time, enjoy!
  • 2 July 2006
    Beta GRSSAL engine is available to GON Site Owners. Development of this new real-time, multi-sensor aggregation engine is coming along well. Only have 4 Data Types (sensor vectors) to correlate currently [1. Magnetic Flux Readings from the 5 GON Sites, 2. Solar Wind Speed and 3. Proton Density, and 4. Seismic (earthquake) data all overlaid onto graphs!].             (GRSSAL - Global Realtime Scientific Sensor Aggregation Limn is pronounced "Grissel") (Limn -  to outline or depict in clear sharp detail )
  • 6 June 2006
    Ingesting data from the ACE Solar Wind Satellite Sensor and USGS Global Seismic network of sensors preparing for the implementation of the GRSSAL!
  • 28 May 2006
    Added many 3D Charts (Makes Sensor Data Visualization Much Easier)!
    Added Solar Wind Data Courtesy the NASA ACE Program (I hope to work for NASA someday!)
  • 23 May 2006
    90 Day Magnetic Flux AND temp Graphs Available!
    We now have 48hour, 30 day, and now, 90 Flux/Temp graphs available for analysis of the earth's magnetic field!
  • 20 May 2006
    We have added many "Bit Propulsion By Perl" images to our website to promote Perl advocacy. We created the slogan using a Perl program and plodding thru various permutations of "......by Perl", How's that for irony :>)
  • 18 May 2006
    Students and amateur scientist begin studying the earths magnetic field using TerraMagnetoScope!
    A few folks are trying to determine if there is a correlation between the geomagnetic field and seismic events. Also of note, the first multi-sensor graphs are available in the "Mag Flux Sensors Graphs" area. So far only 48 hour/30 Day graphs are available.
  • 1 May 2006
    The TerraMagnetoScope is running in its own webspace (instead of mollensoft.com sub-domain) in an initial operating capacity, [running with minimal capability].
  • 14 April 2006
    Initial, real-time data network infrastructure in place, working on building some display graphs for multiple sites.
  • 8 Feb 2006
    Started ingesting GON Network Data [Thanks Craig!]
  • 4 January 2006
    Formalized concept to further student/amateur scientist understanding and analysis of the Geomagnetic Field. Studied, several Global magnetic networks, settled on using GON. Hope to aggregate many types of sensor data at once (in addition to GON Mag Field data).

Bug Fixes

  • 10 August 2006
    Found a couple of small date-time bugs in the GRSSAL, fixed them and updated it to Version Beta-22.
  • 10 June 2006
    Fixed Graph Hangs from GRSSAL Beta aggregation engine (way too many problems to post!).
  • 16 May 2006
    Fixed fixed (removed) Javascript vector selection in main forms (causing problems for folks with older browsers/systems).
  • 11 May 2006
    Fixed bug in the remote data acquisition processors that crashed several other things when data was seemingly not available.
  • 4 May 2006
    Fixed a GD Graphing inconsistency. (silly mistake).
  • 7 April 2006
    Patched new server and reinstalled database server, Perl to provide separate platform for mollensoft.com and TerraMagnetoScope.net data.
  • 16 March 2006
    Fixed bug in the last 48hours sql remote query tool.
  • 9 March 2006
    Fixed bug causing Malformed GD Graphs being created with inverted data.
  • 11 Feb 2006
    Fixed glitch in Remote/Local Data vector ingestion routines (dupe data attempted to be submitted to remote server).
