ECMWF hosted the second EarthServer-2 project meeting on 8 and 9 October 2015. Funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme, EarthServer-2 aims to offer improved access to Big Earth Data through established web service standards of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC).

“Based on rasdaman, a leading array database technology, the project will transform the way Earth system scientists access and process data,” says Julia Wagemann of ECMWF. One of the ways it aims to do this is by enhancing existing data archives with flexible, scalable query functionality.
