Submissions for AGU abstracts are due by August 3rd (just around the corner). Mike Little, Dawn Wright, Emily Law, and myself (Dan Duffy) would like to invite you to submit an abstract to our session that will explore developments and enhancements for GIS, cloud computing, analytics, and HPC for large Earth science data sets (see the session description below). We believe that the work you are currently involved in would be ideal to present at this session.

Feel free to pass along this invitation to others with similar interests. We are very excited about hosting this session and look forward to seeing and hearing from all of you at AGU.

Session ID: 13648

Session Title: Exploiting Big Earth Data: GIS and Beyond

Session Description:
Developments in GIS, Cloud Computing, Analysis Tools, and HPC enable science communities to accelerate management, modeling, analysis and visualization of large datasets. The demonstration of new technologies in ESIP, EarthCube, and NASA show great promise in creating new analytic capabilities to address critical science questions.

GIS tools enable analysis, computing, and visualization, while scaling up using cloud-computing services. Powerful capabilities involving NoSQL, MapReduce, Deep Learning, and compression techniques are being exploited to accelerate data analytics. Combined with new emerging hardware capabilities, scientists are being presented with a significant enhancement in capabilities to address problems of unprecedented size and complexity.

This session explores emerging examples of advances in the use of GIS and other tools as applied in big Earth data exploitation. Emphasis will be placed on examples of the application of these technologies into scientists’ working environments and the demonstration of the value to Earth science and application users.
