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 MEA concept
MEA is a web portal that allows accessing and exploiting time series of various environmental fields most of which retrieved from satellite data.
The Earth Observation Data Service, powering MEA web portal has been implemented within theproject to enable the access to a large volume and variety of EO products from heterogeneous data sources (satellite, in-situ, model). The Multi-sensor Evolution Analysis (MEA) exploitation platform provides the Earth Observation and geospatial data analysis tools empowered with OGC standard interfaces.
