MODOEKvis: R Shiny visualisation tool for the Model Ecosystem Facility (MODOEK)

Haeni, Matthias; Schönbeck, Leonie; Gessler, Arthur; Schaub, Marcus

MODOEKvis is a visualisation tool written with R Shiny for the Model Ecosystem Facility (MODOEK) at the Swiss Federal Research Institute WSL. The data is sourced from the Oracle Database hosted at the WSL, processed with python and R on an Ubuntu machine, and finally published with an R Shiny application.

The tool displays the latest 2016 data, i.e. relative soil water contents (RWC, %) and soil temperatures (°C) from the quarters of each of the 16 MODOEK chambers. Read more about the MODOEK and our ongoing research:
