Abstract: GeoBrain plans on mobilize NASA EOS data and information through Web service and knowledge management technologies for higher-education teaching and research. The technologies, based on geo-object and geo-tree concepts, will be implemented in a standards-compliant, open, distributed, three-tier web information system. The system will make petabytes of NASA EOS data and information, especially ... those in the ECS data pools, as easily accessible as their local resources, to higher-education users, both professors and students. The system will allow users to dynamically and collaboratively develop interoperable, web-executable geospatial service modules and models, and run them on-line against any part of the petabytes of archived data, to get back customized information products rather than raw data. This project will bring a data-enhanced geospatial learning and research environment to the desktops of students and professors that they have never previously experienced before.
This web site allows users to download personalized Landsat, MODIS, and other EOS data from GeoBrain.
