SeaDAS on M1Pro Mac?

by eko1968 » Wed Apr 06, 2022 12:07 am America/New_York

Hello,

Is there anyone knows here whether SeaDAS can be installed on Mac with M1Pro processor?
It is written in the SeaDAS homepage that Mac with Intel processor is required.
I just want to make sure before purchasing M1Pro MacBook.

Thanks.

We do not have a Mac with M1Pro processor to test OCSSW with, so we can’t say for sure if SeaDAS-OCSSW will work on it. Here is a post where a user complained about installing OCSSW on a Mac with ARM 64 chips --viewtopic.php?t=3029&sid=f2eed689691257f16d1d002de9fba2da&start=10#p10749

That said, you may be able to run a Linux VM on your new Mac, under which you could run the server side for the client/server approach we developed: https://seadas.gsfc.nasa.gov/client_server/. The visualization part of SeaDAS should work on Mac with M1Pro processor.
