Evolution of Browse at EOSDIS
This will be an interactive session discussing how the Global Imagery Browse Services (GIBS) fit into EOSDIS. The GIBS vision, proposed architecture, requirements, roles and responsibilities, and user scenarios will be presented and discussed. For background on GIBS please visit http://earthdata.nasa.go
As a part of this discussion, the NASA Worldview team will demonstrate current and near-future functionality leveraging GIBS imagery. For a look at the current Worldview capabilities, visit http://earthdata.nasa.
Background: The vision of the EOSDIS Global Imagery Browse Services (GIBS) system is “to transform how end users interact with and discover EOSDIS data.” To accomplish this vision, the GIBS system will be developed as a core EOSDIS component enhancing the suite of EOSDIS services with a highly scalable, high performing, and highly available set of imagery services. By doing so, GIBS will expand the reach of EOSDIS imagery through the adoption of community-based standards. In addition, GIBS will allow for a tighter integration and no-boundaries interaction with cross-disciplinary data discovery within existing and future EOSDIS applications and services.
