Goal

I want to visualize how the score of a model changes in relation to select parameters of the model. Ultimately I would like to maximise/minimise my score using an optimizer, but before I think about doing that I would like to convince myself that there are maxima that I can find. I aim to explore a handful of the BIOMOD aglorithms su...

An epic November/Christmas release

As November comes to an end, you may have noticed we’ve sneakily slipped in a release of epic proportions.

Luda-christmas has come early for BCCVL users!

After frantically unwrapping this gift in the way a three year-old tackles delicately wrapped presents in the wee hours of Christmas morning, you’ll squeal with youthful delight upon discovering;

Intro

So I’m new to SDMs. I have a fair bit of machine learning under my belt and am trying to convince myself that SDMs make sense and are useful things! I decided to build and test a basic SDM in the way I would have done based on my previous experience using machine learning and see how it goes.

Goal

The goal of this page is explore and understand ROC curves in the context of SDMs.

Set up

So I already set up an experiment where I trained a model in lower NSW and tested it in upper NSW. So just to be clear, slicing things up geographically is a flawed approach to training and testing (just randomly subdividing your...

Absence Data

So I’ve been getting to know the excellently crafted infrastructure here at the BCCVL, debugging various R scripts, processing data, and getting a feel for how the entire process happens. When I decided that I was going to give the wheels a spin myself (in my own way), the first thing that started to really ponder was the...

We are LIVE!

August 28th marked the launch of the Biodiversity & Climate Change Virtual Lab.

To celebrate, we held a launch party on the top floor of the Webb Centre at Griffith University’s Southbank Campus in Brisbane for everyone who dedicated time to the development of the BCCVL project. This included members of the BCCVL steering committee, technical committee and scientific advisory committee, the development team, representatives from our partners and various organisations who assisted with our dataset collections, end users, Griffith University staff who assis...

Theoretical Astrophysical Observatory v1.1 released

Amr Hassan

We're very happy to announce the release of TAOv1.1. This is a major update and includes the following new features and bug fixes:

  • Significant stability, performance and back-end enhancements.
  • Fixed a serious bug with magnitude calculations. They weren't totally wrong before, just off, especially at the bright-end. This has been rectified.
  • Fixed a property ordering bug in the output file.
  • Fixed a dust model selection bug.
  • Bandpass filters are now grouped and sorted by wavelength.
  • New filters: TOPHAT (used by the CANDELS team).

The endoVL supported Australian Diabetes Data Network (ADDN) has received extremely positive feedback from the Australasia Paediatric Endocrine Group (APEG) and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). This system currently makes extensive information available on type-1 diabetes patients from across Australia. At present over 1200 patients have been included into the system with over 5000 consented and to be added imminently. It is expected that the system will eventually support over 20,000 patients and be used for a range of studies and collaborations. Automated procedures are used...

Globalisation of cancer research

The adrenal tumour component of endoVL (aka ENSAT-CANCER) continues to expand. The system is now being used by 52 major cancer centres in North and South America, across all of Europe and Asia. It also supports over 20 major international clinical trials.

Looking for testers…

Here is your chance to check out the BCCVL before anyone else.

Just register to be a tester. It’s quick. It’s easy. You can do it at any time. Just play around with it and tell us what you think.

There will be a limit to the number of people we give access to. But everyone who registers will be given early access before we go live.
