AIS developed a prototype web application that leverages open standards for real-time data sharing and geospatial processing. It’s highly suggested you read our first two blog posts on this application, part one and part two.

In this post, we are going to discuss three areas of improvement for the application. We wanted to improve collaboration, improve management of events by adding a search capability, and improve the edit capabilities. Read More…

Because of our broad knowledge in building web applications, AIS decided to develop a prototype that highlights the features and capabilities of open standards for geospatial processing and data sharing through web applications.

We chose the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) as our data source for the demonstration. VIIRS collects visible and infrared imagery and radiometric data for civil and military Earth monitoring. (The Day/Night Band (DNB) datasets available from NOAA’s Comprehensive Large Array-Data Stewardship System are not quite in the format we need for our application, since they are sensor data records stored within an HDF5 container.)
