Getting AWIPS II
The AWIPS CAVE client for student and faculty use can be downloaded from Unidata’s website: http://unidata.github.io/awips2/install/install-cave/
The CAVE Windows client requires additional Python utilities for full functionality. Follow these instructions to download our Python build and configure CAVE to use it.
- Download the zip file: CAVE-Miniconda3.zip
- Inside the zip file is a folder called CAVE-Miniconda3. Extract this folder in to C:\ProgramData.
- Locate the file C:\ProgramData\Cave-Miniconda3\erau_cave.bat. Create a shortcut to this batch file, and put the shortcut somewhere convenient to you.
- Run the shortcut, or the batch file directly, to launch CAVE with Miniconda 3. Use CAVE as you normally would.
