The 2016 Big Data from Space conference was jointly organised by the European Space Agency (ESA), the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission and the European Union Satellite Centre (SatCen), in collaboration with the Instituto de Astrofisica de Canarias (IAC). The conference took place at the Auditorio de Tenerife, in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Spain, from 15 to 17 March 2016.
The demonstration application built using the Web World Wind has been presented at the conference. We aimed at creating tools for transforming the metadata from various ESA data sources and at meaningful visualization of the results. Number and type of products acquired by different ESA EO missions have been selected for the practical demonstration.
In the application, the amount and spatial distribution of ESA products acquired within the defined time series are displayed together with the information about the type of products. To provide a user with an accurate overview of the data status the information is displayed using the 3D globe. The main asset which differentiates this solution from other tools is the adaptation of the choropleth to the currently visible area.
The Software Prototyping and Mobile App Development project is run by an international consortium led by Solenix Deutschland GmbH (DE) with TERRASIGNA Srl (RO), Gisat s.r.o. (CZ), Progressive Systems Srl (IT) and Qualteh JR Srl (RO) as subcontractors.
Gisat provides wide range of geoinformation services based on Earth Observation technology. It focuses on operational application of satellite mapping to monitor various aspects of our environment and development of dedicated web based platforms for geoinformation analysis and assessment
