Production, visualization and analysis of large volumes of remote sensing images modeled as multidimensional data cubes for the entire Brazilian territory.

New article published by the Brazil Data Cube team in partnership with the University of Munster, Germany, and LABISA/DIOTG.

The article “Brazil Data Cube Workflow Engine: a tool for big Earth observation data processing” was published this week in the journal “International Journal of Digital Earth” by the Brazil Data Cube project team in partnership with the University of Munster, Germany, and the LabISA/DIOTG Laboratory.

The article demonstrates the advances in research and development by Earth Observation and Geoinformatics Division (DIOTG) at National Institute for Space Research (INPE) in the area of big data. It presents a system, called Brazil Data Cube Workflow Engine (BDC-WE), designed for processing large volumes of Earth observation data, based on workflow management and integration of OpenEO as an interface for access and process description. To demonstrate the system’s potential, a case study using BDC-WE with applications from the MAPAQUALI project of the LabISA/DIOTG Laboratory is described in the article.

The proposed architecture and the system developed in this work represent an advance in the inclusion of new big data processing techniques on the Brazil Data Cube platform. The article can be accessed at:
