Scalable Multi-Sensor Analysis of Remote Sensing Data


Satellite remote sensing is continuously monitoring the Earth’s surface producing very large volumes of remote sensing data. GeoMultiSens exploits current scientific and technological advances in Big Data infrastructures, parallel computing environments, Visual Analytics and links them with the potential of satellite remote sensing data to address global challenges such as deforestation, loss of biodiversity, and mega cities. The goal of the Big Data system GeoMultiSens is to enable scientists to study changes of the Earth’s surface on high-resolution scenes.

GeoMultiSens has been selected for the Bitkom, Smart Data Forum, and Germany Trade & Invest report "Germany Excellence in Big Data". The report presents the research focuses on more than 30 scientific organizations, and projects, products and strategies technology vendors to an international audience.
