The Open Source Geospatial Foundation is pleased to welcome the Open Data Cube project to our OSGeo Community program. The Open Data Cube project is an open source geospatial data management and analysis software project that helps harness the power of satellite data.
The OSGeo Community program recognizes applications and tools that are geospatial, freely available with an open source license, and are setup to collaborate fairly. This program helps OSGeo promote innovation and the hard work of teams and organizations world-wide. “Thanks to the Open Data Cube team for answering our questions, this is a really well organized project and it is a pleasure to welcome the team to OSGeo. Thanks to Bruce Bannerman and the incubation committee for moving this forward!”, says OSGeo Incubation Chair Jody Garnett.
The Open Data Cube project addresses a growing domain for Earth observation data exploitation platforms, increasing the usage and value of satellite data, as well as providing tooling for the efficient data preparation, access, and analysis of EO data. “The Open Data Cube has been an integral component in Geoscience Australia’s Digital Earth Australia and Digital Earth Africa programs, and has been used all over the world by a range of institutions and individuals to make Earth observation data easier to access”, adds Alex Leith, the Open Data Cube Steering Council Chair.
