Remote Sensing Image Archive for National User Requirements

Abstract

Switzerland is participating in a variety of ESA programmes dedicated to Earth Observation missions. Modern sensor systems have and are continuing to acquire data which serve as valuable information sources for scientists in research and application disciplines. The growing amount of data asks for adequate storage and retrieval facilities. We are in favour of distributed archiving facilities put under the responsibility of national authorities. In addition, historical data sets in Switzerland of about 50-100 Gbytes are in danger of getting destroyed due to the limited life time of conventional magnetic tape media used. From the users point of view operational monitoring applications need to be based on fast data validation and distribution tools. In order to satisfy in future specific user requirements the archivation technique will be based beyond that on picture content retrieval. Existing operational catalogue systems are rather primitive and a far away to be a standard. Storage capacities and computer communication techniques becoming now available are promising prerequisites for the envisaged networking requirements.
