Proceedings of 2016 conference on "Big Data from Space" available

(21 March 2016) The “Big Data from Space” conference was held from the 15th to the 17th of March 2016 at the auditorio de Tenerife (Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Spain), being co-organized by the European Commission, ESA, Joint Research Center of the European Commission (JRC) and the European Union Satellite Centre (SatCen).

The proceedings of the conference are now available, consisting of a collection of 108 short papers corresponding to the oral and poster presentations presented at the conference. They provide a snapshot of the current research activities, developments, and initiatives in Big Data from Space.

Big Data processing is becoming a key topic in the Earth Observation data management, being collected by space-borne and ground-based sensors. These data are qualified as ‘big data’ given the sheer volume of sensed data, their high velocity, their variety, as well as their veracity.
