EGSC HPCC Operational Web Site


Eastern Geographic Science Center
High-Performance Computing Cluster

The EGSC HPCC was fully returned to service on Monday morning, January 12, 2014, following interruptions to electrical power service that began on Friday, January 9. Please report any problems through this site's contact form.


This is the operational Web Site for the Eastern Geographic Science Center (EGSC) High-Performance Computing Cluster (HPCC). The EGSC HPCC is a Beowulf, a cluster of eighteen computers interconnected by a private, high-speed network. This facility is operated by the Eastern Geographic Science Center primarily to support the development and operation of computationally-intensive models and applications in land-change science and quantitative geography.

This Web site has two functions:

  1. Providing General and Technical Information: this site provides information about the capabilities and availability of this computational facility for USGS researchers who may require computational support; and
  2. Providing a Web Interface: this site provides Web access to the applications and jobs hosted on the EGSC HPCC.


Please refer to this Site's "Help" pages for information on how to navigate this Web site.
