OGC Requests Information on Earth Observation Big Data Architecture

Organizations are invited to provide feedback on the draft Earth Observation Cloud Applications architecture, and express their interest in joining the upcoming evaluation Pilot

11 April 2019: The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), in collaboration with  The European Space Agency (ESA), is seeking industry feedback on its draft Earth Observation Big Data Architecture and a planned Earth Observation Big Data Analytics Market Enablement Initiative coming up later this year.

Over the last two years, as an outcome of OGC’s  Testbed-13 and  Testbed-14 Interoperability Initiatives, OGC, in collaboration with ESA and other OGC member sponsors, developed a software architecture that allows deploying and executing applications close to the physical location of big data, such as Earth Observation data (e.g. remote sensed images), model outputs (e.g. climate forecasts), and other in situ data. The architecture features a set of emerging specifications that will standardize the full data-analysis life cycle.

The cloud-hosted data-analysis life cycle includes: application development and description; containerization; registration at app stores; discovery and on-request deployment in cloud environments; parameterized execution and final result access. This life cycle occurs in harmony with business functions such as quoting and billing.

Developed in a rapid prototyping research environment, the software architecture is now ready for real world testing and exploitation. OGC, together with its sponsoring organizations ESA and  Telespazio Vega, is therefore organizing a major maturity evaluation Pilot that is open to the whole geospatial community. OGC invites other organizations to sponsor the pilot.

For this reason, organizations are invited to provide feedback on the current architecture, and express their interest in joining the new pilot scheduled tentatively for the second half of 2019. Links to conference publications and Engineering Reports that describe the details of the architecture are available in the RFI.

Organizations are additionally invited to describe their possible contributions, data sets, service offerings, platforms, standards, and architectures to allow the pilot organizers to include all aspects early in the planning phase. The pilot plans to provide cost-share opportunities to participants.

The  Earth Observation Big Data Architecture Request For Information document is available online or for download as a PDF from the  OGC Portal. Information on how to submit a response is contained within the RFI. Responses are requested by April 28, 2019.

About OGC

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) is an international consortium of more than 525 companies, government agencies, research organizations, and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available geospatial standards. OGC standards support interoperable solutions that ‘geo-enable’ the Web, wireless and location-based services, and mainstream IT. OGC standards empower technology developers to make geospatial information and services accessible and useful within any application that needs to be geospatially enabled.
