NASA Brings Earth Science ‘Big Data’ to the Cloud with Amazon Web Services

NASA has announced that it is making a large collection of NASA climate and Earth science satellite data available to the public via the Amazon cloud.

  • NASA Brings Earth Science ‘Big Data’ to the Cloud with Amazon Web Services, by Ruth Marlaire, Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, Calif. RELEASE 13-307 (Nov. 12, 2013).

    By using the cloud, research and application users worldwide gain access to an integrated Earth science computational and data management system they can use on their own.

    The service encompasses selected NASA satellite and global change data sets — including temperature, precipitation, and forest cover — and data processing tools from the NASA Earth Exchange (NEX), a research platform of the NASA Advanced Supercomputer Facility at the agency’s Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, Calif.

  • NASA NEX, Amazon.

    Three NASA NEX datasets are now available, including climate projections and satellite images of Earth.
