mundialis at Big Data from Space (BiDS’19) conference
On Tuesday, 19th Feb. 2019 we’ll be at the 2019 Conference on Big Data from Space (BiDS’19) – Turning Data into Insights, in the Alte Kongresshalle, Munich, Germany. The conference is jointly organised by ESA, SatCen, JRC and hosted by DLR.
Whether participatory urban planning, digital agriculture or near real-time monitoring of flooded plains – the demand for processing large quantities of Earth Observation (EO) and geodata is constantly increasing. In addition to the amount of data to be processed, the lack of compatibility between different data systems has often been an obstacle.
The cloud based geoprocessing platform actinia is able to ingest and analyse large volumes of data already present in the cloud. Through actinia’s REST API, following the paradigm of computing next to the data, users can now process and analyse EO- and geodata. Due to the scalability of cloud platforms, insights and tailor made information are delivered in near real-time. Furthermore, methods and algorithms can be easily integrated into own business processes.
Actinia provides an open source REST API for scalable, distributed, and high performance processing of geographical data that mainly uses GRASS GIS for computational tasks.
