This work is devoted to the description of a software system that was developed using modern network and geoinformation technologies for analysis of geospatial data. The system includes a client web application, which provides access to mapping services and geoprocessing services published on the GIS server. The approach, which forms the basis of the presented system, allows researchers to access an extensive geodatabase for remote sensing and Earth sciences, as well as a set of tools for their comprehensive analysis.
