As part of the Earth Observation Applications Pilot, OGC, ESA and Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) have matured an architecture that enables software developers to easily package and share their applications.

Conducted between December 2019 and September 2020, the Pilot project has developed an architecture and methods that enable simple sharing of data processing applications mong scientists, scientific communities, and beyond.

This new principle will allow application developers and application consumers to choose and use the best tool for any given data challenge. This method ensures support to the required scaling on the infrastructure side through cloud.

Additionally, OGC Standards ensure seamless interaction of all components. This step could aid in the full exploitation of IT clouds and Big Data processing.

While the participants’ experiences as either application developers or platform providers are documented across other reportsfindings of the Pilot are summarized in the OGC Earth Observation Applications Pilot: Summary Engineering Report.

The Earth Observation Applications Pilot was conducted under OGC’s Innovation Program, which is a collaborative, agile, prototyping and engineering environment.

As part of this program, sponsors and OGC members are coming together to address challenges related to location interoperability while validating international open standards.
