We were very fortunate to have Dr. Keith Bechtol, one of the Rubin Commissioning Team members and a faculty at the University of Wisconsin/Madison to be the presenter at the most recent DP0.1 Delegate Assembly. This virtual gathering took place on Friday October 8. Dr. Bechtol showcased various tools which can be used for data visualization, and in particular, Datashader, HoloViews, and Bokeh. The presentation also highlighted the different approaches / philosophies which went into the design of those visualization tools. He first illustrated those tools via two notebooks available to all delegates - those are 08a_Interactive_Image_Visualization.ipynb and 08b_Interactive_Catalog_Visualization.ipynb - both available here.
Dr. Bechtol also presented one more notebook, 08c_Interactive_Image-Catalog_Visualization.ipynb which
highlights interaction between image and catalog displays. This notebook is located in another repository, set up for notebooks contributed by DP0 delegates, located here
The recording of this Assembly can be found at this link.
During a brief break several delegates showed their “profiles,” or one-slide summaries of their research interests. The Assembly continued for the second hour in zoom breakout rooms.
The next DP0 Delegate Assembly will be on Friday October 22, and will cover the details of the Rubin Observatory image processing. The presenter will be Dr. Andrew Bradshaw (member of the Rubin Camera
Subsystem team). We also hope to continue with presentations of the delegate profiles.
