PolarStar: Polar Star Mapserver, Terascan and Ice Observations Project


The Polar Star Mapserver, Terascan and Ice Observations Project was created for the US Coast Guard for installation on the USCGC Polar Star. The software includes Mapserver, Terascan processing, and an Ice Observations Form and was written for and tested using the previous SCS Data System real-time data format on the USCGC Healy. This software was intended for use on the USCGC Polar Star, but was never updated to use the newer real-time data format from the USCGC Polar Star data systems. This project was halted per the request of USCG's Dave Cohoe.
