Sentinel-2 Semantic Data & Information Cube Austria is the world’s first prototype of a semantic Earth Observation data cube. It allows anyone to produce information from satellite imagery on a high semantic level using a code-free analysis within a standard Web-browser or mobile application.
Sustaining such a semantic data cube for a whole region/country and upscaling it, incorporating all semantically enriched Sentinel-2 data since 2015 (start of the mission), requires access to cloud resources and attached Earth Observation (EO) services.
Thanks to OCRE funding, the EO Analysis research group at the Department of Geoinformatics – Z_GIS, University of Salzburg was provided with means to ensure the system’s sustainability for the next three years and to scale-up the prototype, demonstrating how users/non-EO experts could analyse Sentinel-2 data within their browser without the need for any programming skills.
