Abstract

GeoMultiSens developed an integrated processing pipeline to support the analysis of homogenized data from various remote sensing archives. The processing pipeline has five main components: (1) visual assessment of remote sensing Earth observations, (2) homogenization of selected Earth observation, (3) efficient data management with XtreemFS, (4) Python-based parallel processing and analysis algorithms implemented in a Flink cloud environment, and (5) visual exploration of the results. GeoMultiSens currently supports the classification of land-cover for Europe.

          • abstract
            • CharacterString: GeoMultiSens developed an integrated processing pipeline to support the analysis of homogenized data from various remote sensing archives. The processing pipeline has five main components: (1) visual assessment of remote sensing Earth observations, (2) homogenization of selected Earth observation, (3) efficient data management with XtreemFS, (4) Python-based parallel processing and analysis algorithms implemented in a Flink cloud environment, and (5) visual exploration of the results. GeoMultiSens currently supports the classification of land-cover for Europe.
