Global Reference Grids for Big Earth Data

Matthew Purss, Peter Strobl and Zoltan Szantoi

(Submission #246)


A prerequisite to cope with “Big Earth Data” coming from Earth Observation (EO) and other sources will be the integration of existing and future data infrastructures, a task that puts a strong focus on coordination, harmonisation and interoperability of data and services. A multitude of respective standardisation initiatives are underway by various stakeholders such as INSPIRE, OGC, ISO, UN-GGIM, CEOS, and GEO. Georeferenced grids are a central concern in many of them and the various approaches entail a coordination task of its own. The intention of this session is to gather geospatial data and standardisation experts from different communities, share knowledge and information regarding current initiatives and developments regarding global grid infrastructures for Big Earth Data (such as EQUI7, Web Map Tile/Web Coverage Services, Data cubes and Discrete Global Grid Systems), and to promote a network for coordination and awareness raising for related existing and planned standards development and implementation activities.
