EODATASERVICE

... implements the concept of Digital Earth making global environmental geospatial data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR).

... provides an effective subsetting functionality that accesses the data only when requested and serves to the client only the data amount that is really needed.

... exposes OGC-standardised discovery (openSearch) and access (WCS 2.0) interfaces.

Implementation

Eodataservice is a distributed platform: data remains at the data provider premises and are accessed only when requested.

Two types of user interfaces are provided:

  • → a web based graphic user interface
  • → a Jupiter notebook (python console)

To get more information about the elements of the user Interface you can explore the image below.

1D Plots
This panel shows time series for single point, multiple points, multiple variables, and processing results.
Layers manager
This panel allows managing all interface layers: global layers, spatial subsets, processing results. You can manage the displayed layers, search for subset time series, and download the data (single layers, time series).
Processing
Following data processing functions are available to work on points and subsets:
  • Accumulated / Averaged values computation
  • Search Accumulated/Averaged events
  • Search events by threshold
Processing functions are available for advanced users.
Projections
Move from 3D to two 2D views to better play with the data.
Zoom box
Draw an area and zoom in for further analysis.
Reset
Clean the page and reload last used dataset.
Area selection
Select an area of interest for your purposes: data subset, statistics computation, data download.
Pan
Selected by default, allows moving the maps in all directions.
Points manager
Points can be added with a map click, providing latitude and longitude, or via the location search button. Points are used for time series, statistics computation and data download.
Location Search
Type the name of the place you want to work on, and it gets automatically added to your points.
Full Cataloge
More than 20 global collections are available through the platform. Use the "add to basket" button to select those you want to work with and move them to the product basket.
Personal basket
Your personal list of products selected for further analysis. Use the "load to the system" button to start playing with each product.
Ground Points
Points can be added with a map click, providing latitude and longitude, or via the location search button. Points are used for time series, statistics computation and data download.
Time bar
For each collection, all available data are displayed. select the year / month / day to load the available product(s).
Jupyter
Access to the Jupyter platform.
Messages
System messages notification (e.g. order ready).

Applications

Eodataservice is a cross-domain application that supports various application fields

Besides the generic data access platform, dedicated interfaces can be developed for specific needs (e.g. on the fly processing capabilities, …)

Christmas Gift – Share your Memory

NEW YORK. Do you remember winter 1983? No? Well, you should, .since that year the Christmas day was the coldest of the last 40 years: -12.8 °C (9°F). The hottest Chrismas? 2015 (15.6°C / 60.1 °F).   Our perception, memories, do not always match with the reality. Out memories are related to events, emotions. What happened in a specific place, at […]
