EarthServer initiative is establishing Agile Analytics on Petabyte data cubes as a commodity.
Pushing the boundaries of Big Earth Data services, the intercontinental Earthserver initiative enables researchers to browse, access, and analyze massive multi-dimensional data sets from a wide range of sources. Big Earth Data at your fingertips - this is the vision of EarthServer for unleashing the potential of Big Data through a disruptive paradigm shift in technology.
The Planetary Service is hosted at Jacobs University Bremen, within the Physics & Earth Sciences and Computer Science departments. The service will provide access to tens of TB of data (topographic, multi- and hyperspectral) through OGC web services across multiple Solar System bodies: Mars, Mercury, the Moon. Building upon existing EarthServer-1 data, tools and experience , it uses innovative client technologies and the latest development of the engine of EarhtServer-2: rasdaman.
