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.

#DYK that #Australia is surrounded by around 11 000 km of mangrove-lined coast?
As more people move closer to coastal zones, the risk to mangroves increases: dumping of waste, fish farming, sea level rise and climate change all contribute to destroying mangrove's ecosystems.


Big Data from Space 2021

May 18 - May 20

The 2021 online edition of the Big Data from Space conference will emphasise not only on the insights that can be retrieved from Big Data from Space but also on the exploitation of these insights for foresight, that is our capacity of foreseeing. This capacity is becoming increasingly important given the pace at which our …

Φ-week 2021: NewSpace economy and associated innovations

October 11 - October 15

The main theme of Φ-week 2021 is the NewSpace economy and associated innovations – a global trend of emerging investment and entrepreneurial philosophy that, together with key technological advancements, is enabling a private space industry largely driven by commercial motivations and will eventually evolve into EO Commercial Space. The event will highlight how the NewSpace …
