About the EOF-based Time Series Reconstructor

The EOF-based Time Series Reconstructor software package is a QGIS plugin that provides a EOF-based reconstruction tool for filling gaps, caused by e.g. clouds, in geophysical time series, like ocean temperature. It is developed specifically for oceanography.

The software is based on DINEOF: a FORTRAN tool in continuous development since 2008.

The software has now been developed in the open source environment to encourage further development of the tool.

The instruction pages can be found at <https://eof-reconstructor.readthedocs.io>.

The code repository can be found at https://bitbucket.org/kul-reseco/dineof.

The software and user guide are based on DINEOF 4.0 developed by Alvera-Azcárte and A. Barth (ULG Liège): available at https://github.com/aida-alvera/DINEOF.

The software also makes use of the QGISPluginSupport python packages developed by Benjamin Jakimow (HU Berlin): https://bitbucket.org/jakimowb/qgispluginsupport.

This revision into a QGIS plugin is funded primarily through BELSPO (the Belgian Science Policy Office) in the framework of the STEREO III Programme – Project LUMOS - SR/01/321.
