Workshop: CEOS Open Data Cube - A new way to manage satellite data utilizing an open source platform

Presented By: Brian Killough, Sanjay Gowda, Syed R Rizvi

Sunday, July 23, 08:30 - 12:30

The Committee on Earth Observation Satellites (CEOS) has started the Open Data Cube (ODC) initiative to provide an open source data architecture solution that has value to its global users and increases the impact of Earth observation satellite data. The ODC is a common analytical framework that includes API development, cloud integration, a web-based user interface, and data analytics to facilitate the organization and analysis of large, gridded data collections. Based on analysis ready data from current CEOS satellite systems, the ODC is a technological solution that removes the burden of data preparation, yields rapid results, and utilizes an international global community of contributors. The ODC is currently operating in Australia, Colombia and Switzerland with several more countries in development. This workshop will provide a hands-on introduction to the Open Data Cube including the topics of data acquisition and processing, ingestion of data into a gridded time series data cube, data interoperability, application analyses, and future plans. The target audience is scientists, researchers, project managers, and students with knowledge or experience in satellite imagery interpretation. The workshop is FREE to all registrants.
