Leveraging emerging technologies for spatial data infrastructure/portal serving maps and models


Instrument technologies for making science observations have advanced considerably with datasets now in the petabyte range for all science domains (such as earth, planetary and others). The scale and complexity of increasing science data, commonly referred to as “Big Data” posts challenges in many aspects for science data systems. For instance, today’s image files science data systems manage range from a few gigabytes to hundreds of gigabytes in size with new data arriving every day. Despite this ever-increasing amount of data, science data systems must make the data readily available in a timely manner for users to view and analyze. This poster gives an example how emerging technologies including Web Services, GIS and Cloud are leveraged in a science data portal to address serving large scaled images and models.
