Abstract

Advances in remote sensing technologies have enabled public and commercial organizations to send an ever-increasing number of satellites in orbit around Earth. As a result, Earth Observation (EO) data has been constantly increasing in volume in the last few years, and is currently reaching petabytes in many satellite archives. For example, the multi-mission data archive of the TELEIOS partner German Aerospace Center (DLR) is expected to reach 2PB next year, while ESA estimates that it will be archiving 20PB of data before the year 2020. As the volume of data in satellite archives has been increasing, so have the scientific and commercial applications of EO data. Nevertheless, it is estimated that up to 95% of the data present in existing archives has never been accessed, so the potential for increasing exploitation is very big.
