Platform services

Platform services provide data analytics, collaboration tools or other supporting  functions to scientists or value adders to allow them to achieve their results in the shortest time possible, and in particular without the need to download the data on their own infrastructure. The services rely on the underlying data infrastructure for massive data extraction and processing.

While the availability of the growing volume of environmental data from space represents a unique opportunity for science and applications, it also poses a major challenge to achieve its full potential in terms of data exploitation. Advance on ICT big data solutions allow to move the activities from user workstations to cloud based platforms, which provide local access to EO data as well as the tools to manipulate them.
To perform large-scale EO data exploitation efficiently in future, ESA invests into a growing ecosystem of generic platform capabilities and community-specific environments as the Thematic Exploitation Platforms.
