Brazil Data Cube is a project that is being developed by the Brazil’s National Institute for Space Research (INPE), since January 2019, that aims to create multidimensional data cubes of analysis-ready from medium-resolution Earth observation images….
The researcher presented the paper entitled “Using SOM Neural Network to Improve Land Use and Cover Training Samples from Satellite Image Time Series”, of her authored along with Dr. Karine Ferreira, MSc. Lorena Santos, and Dr. Gilberto Camara.
The MACLEAN workshop: MAChine Learning for EArth ObservatioN, Dr. Karine presented the paper entitled “Evaluating Distance Measures for Image Series Clustering in Land Use and Cover Monitoring”, of her authored along MSc. Lorena Alves Santos and Dr.Michelle CA Picoli.
The “Brazilian Earth Observation Data Cube using AWS for Land Use and Cover Change” project was chosen among several proposals by the Group on Earth Observations (GEO) and the Amazon Web Services (AWS). It was awarded US$ 60,000 through the Earth Observation Cloud Credits Program
The winners were announced on Monday (10/06) in Washington, United States, during the AWS Public Sector Summit.
The goal of the INPE’s project is to compute, store and process large volumes of satellite images for the automatic generation of land use and cover maps of Brazil. AWS is now helping INPE to archive this goal.
The project team is led by researchers Karine Ferreira, Lubia Vinhas, Gilberto Queiroz, Ricardo Souza, Ieda Sanches, Claudio Almeida and Leila Fonseca, from INPE Earth Observation Coordination (OBT).
“This will increase our ability to work with cloud computing technology on a major issue for our area and for INPE,” says Karine Ferreira, leader of the project.
