As a GEO community activity, the Open Earth Alliance (OEA) will support global sustainability (and understanding) through the use of open technology solutions: open geospatial data infrastructures, open earth observation data, and open algorithms and analytics. The Open Earth Alliance seeks to close the gap that exists between open Earth Observation (EO) data and the end-user.
Though our organization is technology agnostic, we leverage the Open Data Cube for many of our solutions.
GEOSPATIAL DATA MANAGEMENT & ANALYSIS SOFTWARE
Depending on your application, the Open Data Cube can be deployed on HPC, Cloud, and local installations. Typical installations run on Linux, MacOS, and Windows.
We believe in Open Technology and Open Solutions. We hope the Open Earth Alliance motivates a vibrant developer community. Please click below to visit the ODC GitHub.
Every audacious goal starts with a prototype. We are delivering solutions to the help the community. Please click below to see an overview of all the projects we are working on.
The Open Earth Alliance team leans on its successful relationships with global organizations, universities, government space agencies, and big tech. The OEA team has significant experience working together on the Open Data Cube initiative (opendatacube.org). OEA consists of a team of highly talented and motivated scientists, engineers, computer scientists, with heavy international experience. The team has significant experience with the deployment of open data cube solutions around the world:
10+ countries have operational data cubes
15+ countries are developing (or planning to develop) data cubes,
30+ countries have expressed interest,
The African Regional Data Cube expanded the ODC to 5 African countries. Digital Earth Africa (led by GA) will significantly expand ODC deployment
Other regional deployments of the ODC are in incubation (e.g., Digital Earth Latin America)
The Open Data Cube has been deployed in support of UN Sustainable Development Goals
Through these successful deployments, strong relationships have been built with global organizations including: CEOS, GEO, UN, and the UN Foundation. Additionally, partnerships have been formed with big tech including Google, Amazon, and Microsoft, providing both computing infrastructure and technical guidance.
We are highly collaborative in nature and continually seek partnership and community. The Open Earth Alliance is honored to be advised by leading members of the international space community.
