EarthServer-2 Outcomes and Experiences
Convener: Oliver Clements 
Tue, 10 Apr, 10:30–12:00  / Room 0.15

One of today's most influential initiatives in Big Geo Data is EarthServer which is paving the way for flexible, scalable datacube services based on innovative NewSQL technology. Researchers from Europe, the US and recently Australia have teamed up to rigorously materialize the datacube paradigm for Earth Observation, ocean, meteorological, and planetary science.

The platform technology, rasdaman, enables ad-hoc datacube analytics and fusion. Integrated metadata / datacube retrieval is under preparation. Relying on the OGC Big Geo Data standards, WCS and WCPS, "any question, anytime, on any size" becomes possible from open-source tools like OpenLayers, ncWMS, QGIS and proprietary tools like ESRI ArcGIS. NASA WorldWind adds high-end visualization. EarthServer databases have transcended 2.5 Petabytesr. Single queries have been split automatically across more than 1,000 cloud nodes.

The meeting will showcase the outcomes of the EarthServer-2 project. We will also have live demos of all of the services and tools that have been created to facilitate analytics over huge datasets. These include:

• The earth observation data service created by MEEO, giving access to a broad set of earth observation data totaling > 1.5Petabytes
• The marine science data service created by PML, providing access to more than 500TB of ocean colour data
• The Planetary science data service created by JUB, which provides data for Mars and the Moon
• The climate science data service created by ECMWF, showcasing service-based access to multiple Petabytes of meteorological data
