Cube4All aims at a commercial Earth data service leveraging the advantages of open standards based datacube analytics. It makes complex EO tasks simple, keeping simple tasks simple; it will unleash EO analytics and fusion for non-EO / non-IT experts while increasing the productivity of experts.
The resulting service will stand out through
Customers will be able to access existing archives in a massively simplified way as curated datacubes, without any programming skills. This allows users without IT and EO coding expertise to unleash the potential of the mass of EO data assets.
In any case, from a user perspective services stand out in that they simplify accessing Petabytes of Sentinel timeseries, climate variables, DEMs, and thematic products for location-transparent mix&match without programming; proven real-time performance; wide range of common tasks prefabricated, continuously extended; versatile analytics, from standing queries to exploratory – any query, any time; fully customizable workflows; transparent, competitive pricing; users remain in the comfort zone of well-known clients.
Approach: The existing DIAS, CODE-DE, and other public rasdamandatacube services established in research projects (ex: https://processing.code-de.org/rasdaman), with their existing WMS / WCS / WCPS capabilities, will be made more user-friendly and e-commerce ready for rasdaman-as-a-service.
Features to be added include: A prototype of a novel interactive data analytics technique, Query-by-Dialog (QBD), which aims at enabling users to do analytics without coding, without even writing high-level queries.
Cube4All will make complex tasks simple, and keeping simple tasks simple. It unleashes EO analytics and fusion for non-EO / non-IT experts while increasing the productivity of experts.
