BigDataCube is running on CODE-DE


Sharing is Caring

With Big Datac Cubes the innovative datacube paradigm - i.e., analysis-ready spatio-temporal raster data is established on CODE-DE:

Thereby users can manage any request without programming directly on Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2 datacubes in a highly flexible and scalable manner. The consistent usage of OGC Standards enables users of staying in their comfortzone, use their own clients and choose from a wide range of existing Open Source and proprietary clients.

The CODE-DE Datacube service provides interactive navigation, extraction, and analysis on Sentinel datacubes and value-adding products, illustrated by a series of use cases, About 400 TB of data are currently available, covering approximately Germany between January 1, 2018 and now:

- Sentinel 1 GRD (Germany, starting January 01, 2019, EPSG:4326)

- Sea state and windspeed value-adding product (North Sea, starting January 01, 2019, EPSG:4326; generated with DLR SAINT from Sentinel-1)

- Sentinel-2 (Germany, starting January 01, 2018, UTM zones)

All datacubes are served by the rasdaman datacube engine via OGC WMS, WCS, and WCPS standard APIs, therefore access is possible through any standards-conformant client; various such clients are showcased on:

CODE-DE Datacubes have been established in the course of the BigDataCube project ( A federation with further data centers is under preparation.
