In addition to the different available services, WEkEO also provides a JupyterHub development multi-users platform designed to create, run and share Python codes and scripts for data analysis, in virtual Jupyter Environments.

Several Jupyter Notebook files are already available in the WEkEO Jupyter Environment, accessible to all WEkEO users, for free. The only requirement is a WEkEO account.

⚠️ Your data located on the WEkEO JupyterHub will be removed if you stay inactive during 5 months. You can simply login and do some work to reset the counter. After 2 months of inactivity, you will receive an email informing you that your data will be archived for 3 months. You need to contact us during this period for the recovery of the backup.

How to access the WEkEO JupyterHub?

Few simple steps allow you to access the JupyterHub and use the Notebooks available:

  1. Log in to WEkEO JupyterHub. Alternatively, while being signed in WEkEO, you can use the top bar menu and click on the left icon:

  2. Click on Sign in with OAuth 2.0:

  3. Enter the verification code sent to your email address:

  4. Choose the computing resources and click on Start to launch the server:

  5. Your server environment ready, feel free to explore the available resources under the public folder.

πŸ“Œ Note: under your home directory, up to 20 GB of storage are available.

What is available in the WEkEO JupyterHub?

Once your Jupyter's session starts, several filesystems are mounted in different locations:

  • A read-only filesystem that contains code examples under /home/<your_username>/public, where you can find some notebooks demonstrating how to download data from WEkEO into your own Jupyter Environment and some others corresponding to the training sessions on Atmosphere, Climate, Land and Ocean applications

  • A read-only filesystem that contains the files you may had before the migration on June 14th 2022 under /home/<your_username>/old_files

  • A filesystem that contains your persistent files under /home/<your_username>

Your Jupyter instance is initialized with default conda environments, that are reset after each session restart, so all other locations unlisted above are not persisted.
