BDC Products on AWS Cloud Computing Services Platform
Part of the BDC products are generated on AWS using credits earned in the “Group on Earth Observation (GEO) and Amazon Web Services (AWS) Earth Observation Cloud Credits Programme”. Under this program, the project team earned a $60,000 credit to use over three years with AWS cloud computing services to store and process large volumes of Earth observation data for classification of land use and coverage. The project title is “Brazilian Earth Observation Data Cube using AWS for Land Use and Cover Change”.
In the context of this project, the BDC team developed a service to access and visualize remote sensing images from three different satellites, Landsat-8, Sentinel-2 and CBERS-4, stored as AWS buckets under the Public Dataset Program. This service is currently used by the DETER Intenso project through the Forest Monitor system. DETER Intenso is one of INPE’s projects for detecting deforestation and forest degradation alerts.
