Earth observation data cubes for Brazil on AWS as Open Data

From January 2022, the Earth observation data cubes produced by the Brazil Data Cube project are available on AWS (Amazon Web Service) as Open Data. These data cubes are produced from Analysis-Ready Data (ARD) of CBERS-4, Sentinel-2 and Landsat-8 satellite images for the entire region of Brazil. Based on a hierarchical tiling system, the data cubes are regular in time, created by using a temporal compositing function to select the best pixel (free of cloud and cloud shadow) in each period (e.g. a month or 16 days).
