A BETTER project for exploiting Big Data in Earth Observation


The SANSA Stack is one of the earmarked big data analytics components to be employed in the BETTER data pipelines.

Big-data Earth observation Technology and Tools Enhancing Research and development is an EU-H2020 research and innovation project started in November 2017 to the end of October 2020.

The project’s main objective is to implement Big Data solutions (denominated as Data Pipelines) based on the usage of large volumes and heterogeneous Earth Observation datasets. This should help addressing key Societal Challenges, so the users can focus on the analysis of the extraction of the potential knowledge within the data and not on the processing of the data itself.

To achieve that, BETTER is improving the way Big Data service developers interact with end-users. After defining the challenges, the promoters validate the pipelines requirements and co-design the solution with a dedicated development team in a workshop. During the implementation, promoters can continuously test and validate the pipelines. Later, the implemented pipelines will be used by the public in the scope of Hackathons, enabling the use of specific solutions in other areas and the collection of additional user feedback. www.ec-better.eu
