Water Ice Characterization near Candidate Landing Sites at the Lunar South Pole

Volatile  characterization  on  the Lunar  south  pole  has  been  already  carried  out  in  the past,  however  most  of the studies have focused their investigations  on  large  craters.  In  these  studies  a combination of radar, laser altimeter and temperature data has been used.

Analyzing Lunar DTMs through Web Services with EarthServer/PlanetServer-2

In this abstract we present an approach to analyze a Digital Terrain Model (DTM) located at the Lunar south pole using a web client. The aim of this paper is to describe the structure of the project which involves a server (database) and a client (web interface) side. A case study is proposed where the tool will be evaluated to calculate illumination conditions. The analyzed area is located on the south pole of the Moon where illumination has been exhaustively studied. The results will be cross-validated with previous studies in order determine their robustness.

EarthServer - Serving data from ECMWF's archive through OGC coverage services

As partner of the EU funded EarthServer2 project, ECMWF is exploring the provision of an online data exploration and analysis system based on the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standards. Using these standards has the potential to open up services to a wider audience in users domains outside meteorology and climatology.

Earthserver - Opportunities and challenges of serving ECMWF's peta-sized archive through OGC web-services

ECMWF is partner of the EU-funded (Horizon2020) EarthServer-2 project and is setting up a web service that facilitates climate data access, exploration, analysis and visualisation based on Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standards.  By doing this, ECMWF data shall become easier accessible to researchers and decision-makers of the MetOcean and GIS community.

Remote Sensing Data Analytics for Planetary Science with PlanetServer/EarthServer

Planetary Science datasets, beyond the change in the last two decades from physical volumes to internet-accessible archives, still face the problem of large-scale processing and analytics (e.g. Rossi et al., 2014, Gaddis and Hare, 2015). PlanetServer, the Planetary Science Data Service of the EC-funded EarthServer-2 project (#654367) tackles the planetary Big Data analytics problem with an array database approach (Baumann et al., 2014).

PlanetServer/EarthServer: planetary data exploration and exploitation through array databases

PlanetServer, the Planetary Service of the recently completed EC FP7 e-infrastructure project EarthServer (http://earthserver.eu) (Rossi et al, 2014; Baumann et al., 2015) is a state-of-art online data exploration and analysis system based on the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standards. It concentrates on Mars imagery and hyperspectral (MRO CRISM) data (Oosthoek et al., 2014) and also comprises subsurface sounding data from MEX MARSIS (Cantini et al., 2014).

A Distributed Infrastructure for Earth-Science Big Data Retrieval

Earth-Science data are composite, multidimensional and of significant size, and as such, continue to pose a number of on-going problems regarding their management. With new and diverse information sources emerging as well as rates of generated data continuously increasing, a persistent challenge becomes more pressing: to make the information existing in multiple heterogeneous resources readily available. The widespread use of the XML data-exchange format has enabled the rapid accumulation of semi-structured metadata for Earth-Science data.
