PyWPS processes to support climate data processing with WPS.

Project Description


Malleefowl (the bird)
*Malleefowl are shy, wary, solitary birds that usually fly only to escape danger or reach a tree to roost in. Although very active, they are seldom seen [..]* (`Wikipedia`_).

Malleefowl is a Python package to simplify the usage of Web Processing Services (WPS). Currently it is using the `PyWPS`_ server. It comes with some WPS processes which are used by the ``Phoenix`` WPS web-application. These processes are used to support climate data processing with WPS.


Check out code from the malleefowl git repo (will be available on github). Then do the following::

$ cd malleefowl
$ ./
$ ./

After successful installation you need to start the
services. Malleefowl is using `Anaconda`_
Python distribution system. All installed files (config etc ...) are
below the Anaconda root folder which is by default in your home
directory ``~/anaconda``. Now, start the services::

$ cd ~/anaconda
$ etc/init.d/supervisor start
$ etc/init.d/nginx start

The depolyed WPS service is available on http://localhost:8091/wps?service=WPS&version=1.0.0&request=GetCapabilities.

Check the log files for errors::

$ tail -f ~/anaconda/var/log/pywps/malleefowl.log
$ tail -f ~/anaconda/var/log/pywps/malleefowl_trace.log


If you want to run on a different hostname or port then change the default values in ``custom.cfg``::

$ cd malleefowl
$ vim custom.cfg
$ cat custom.cfg
hostname = localhost
http-port = 8091

After any change to your ``custom.cfg`` you **need** to run ```` again and restart the ``supervisor`` service::

$ ./
$ ~/anaconda/etc/init.d/supervisor restart


When updating your installation you may run ```` to remove outdated Python dependencies::

$ cd malleefowl
$ git pull
$ ./
$ ./
$ ./

And then restart the ``supervisor`` and ``nginx`` service.
