Dear all,

here we go: the 1h documentary "Big Earth Data - our digitized planet" will be
    by ARTE (DE, FR)
    on Feb 06, 21:45
See http://www.arte.tv/guide/de/052385-000/big-earth-data-die-digitalisierte-erde

The weekend before, a feature will be in Germany's Frankfurter Allgemeine (FAZ).

This is an outcome of the EarthServer project which, according to reviewers,
"With no doubt has been shaping the Big Earth Data landscape through the
standardization activities within OGC, ISO and beyond “. The underlying rasdaman
array database will “significantly transform the way that scientists in different
areas of Earth Science will be able to access and use data in a way that
hitherto was not possible“.

Meantime EarthServer-2 has been approved, we are finalizing the contract. Goal
will be to have Petabyte datacubes of satellite images and weather data, with
NASA on board as well as the Australian National Computing Infrastructure.

Just wanted to share this exciting event.


PS: the English version we will try to make available after the broadcast.
