Project description


Duration: September 2016 - March 2017

Following the work done by Geoscience Australia and the Committee on Earth Observations Satellites (CEOS), the “Data Cube” is a new way for organizing Earth Observations data (especially Landsat satellite data) by gathering all satellite images through space and time for a given period over a dedicated region. This is a change of paradigm in the way that remote sensing data are being organized for delivering it to end-users. UN Environment/GRID-Geneva and the University of Geneva have built the Swiss Data Cube (SDC). So far, the SDC contains 5 years of Landsat Analysis Ready Data (1984, 1990, 2000, 2010, 2016) corresponding to more than 800 scenes. In the future, more than 30 years of Landsat data will be added as well as Sentinel 1 and 2.
