What is Brazil Data Cube?

Brazil Data Cube is a research, development and technological innovation project of the National Institute for Space Research (INPE), Brazil. It is producing data sets from big volumes of medium-resolution remote sensing images for the entire national territory and developing a computational platform to process and analyze these data sets using artificial intelligence, machine learning and image time series analysis.

Brazil Data Cube is part of the “Environmental Monitoring of Brazilian Biomes project“, funded by the Amazon Fund through the financial collaboration of the Brazilian Development Bank (BNDES) and the Foundation for Science, Technology and Space Applications (FUNCATE) no. 17.2.0536.1 .
