Weight the Ensemble Members

After viewing and diagnosing the ensemble data, you may want to weight the ensembles, for example, to de-emphasize outliers. The weights database is automatically started up with the ifpServer.

Edit weights in Simple Editor

  • Try editing the weights from a rudimentary editor. From the bin directory (same directory as ifpServer and runGFE) type:
    • editWeights
  • A window will appear with the weights and slider bars. Adjust the sliders and press "Publish" to send your edits to the Weights database server. When you publish your model weights other applications can read them and modify the display based on the values of the weights. When you're all done, press "Exit".
