November 2017 - EarthServer, the European Union Big Data initiative, has reached the next milestone: Today in the second phase extending through April 2018, the Italian data provider MEEO S.R.L. exceeds 1 Petabyte of spatio-temporal, analysis ready data processed through its operational Earth Observation Data Service.
November 2017 - Datacubes are receiving attention worldwide as a novel concept making raster data more accessible and easier to analyse. Based on the coverage standards suite of OGC, ISO and INSPIRE with its mature data and service model for spatio-temporal datacubes, OGC now is pulling together all parties interested in this exciting field of technology.
EarthServer´s 2-day workshop “Datacubes for Big Earth Data”, hosted by ESRIN from October 19 – 20 in Frascati / Italy attracted a lot of data users working with large volumes of Earth Science data. Scientists and professionals in research and industry were introduced to the Datacube concept for processing and analysing massive sets of environmental and geospatial data.
