Earth Observation for Location Intelligence

Earth Observation for Location Intelligence

Terabytes and petabytes of frequently captured geospatial Earth Observation data (e.g. high-resolution satellite imagery, aerial photos and LiDAR point clouds) need to be processed in a highly efficient manner. How much information can we extract from such data? How can we turn the Geospatial Big Data into smart location insights? Ultimately, the value of the data can be easily appreciated ...

“Fast Big Data?” A High-Performance System for Creating Global Satellite Image Time Series

“Fast Big Data?” A High-Performance System for Creating Global Satellite Image Time Series

We describe a system that transforms sequences of MODIS images covering the entire Earth into time-optimized data cubes to provide rapid access to time series data for various applications. Abstract: Satellite time series data are key to global change monitoring related to climate and land cover change. Various research and operational applications such as crop monitoring and fire history analysis ...
