Given a date range, the UAVSAR MySQL database is queried to evaluate data acquisition, processing status, and network performance, and uses the Google Charts API to dynamically return images of pie and bar charts to visualize processing and network statistics. The MySQL database is populated with relevant data that includes processing status, as well as network performance (ping and sample file downloads). Then, using the open Google Charts API, the metrics are displayed for any desired date range.
This type of interface for processing metrics and network statistics would be valuable to any task that reports processing metrics, or any task that is partnering with, via the Internet, a data center that receives and distributes the processed data.
