Remotely sensed Earth Observation (EO) data have exceeded a large scale and are increasingly available for different communities and thematic applications. In this matter, EO Data Cubes (EODC) are a promising solution to efficiently manage big EO data, enabling its access, processing and analysis. As final products, EODC provides analysis-ready data (ARD) for vegetation and land use and land cover (LULC) studies, for environmental monitoring urban growth studies, among others. One of the most used preselection criteria for image retrieval of big EO data is the average cloud cover statistic. This paper describes our initiative in the implementation of an ondemand view-based tool for cloud coverage embedded on the Brazil Data Cube (BDC) project based on the SpatioTemporal Asset Catalog (STAC).
