The UNF Advanced Weather Information Systems Laboratory: A novel approach to information systems for Engineering Education
The laboratory allows students to develop real world skills with real world information systems. Several projects will be highlighted that have allowed the laboratory to incorporate both student development and research at the University of North Florida. Among them are Geographic Information Systems applications, the Florida Mesonet, the Florida Road Weather Information System (RWIS) and the FHWA iFlorida Project.
Current plans include continuing with road weather (RWIS) research, and new efforts in realtime data integration, analysis and high-resolution, explicit convection WRF modeling as the next group of AWIS Lab projects.
