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.

Mount #Etna spewing lava and ash into the sky🌋
The volcano has erupted twice in less than 48 hours.
This image, captured yesterday by @CopernicusEU #Sentinel2, it's processed using the mission’s shortwave-infrared band to show the lava flow (bright red).

#EO4Water Cycle Science 2020, join now the Hydro Climatic Extreme Session. We would like to welcome in the panel: Peter Bauer @ECMWF, Joan Campanyà @GeolSurvIE, Anne Springer @UNIBonn and Maria Jose Escorihuela @isardSAT watch live👉!


Tune in. Lots to learn. Plus our Polar TEP poster on Tuesday afternoon.

#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.
