The transatlantic EarthServer initiative has made spatio-temporal analytics a commodity for scientists,
engineers, and decision makers.
By utilizing novel parallel Array Database technology with frontends strictly based on the open OGC
standards, datacubes have become first-class citizens accessible through direct interaction with simple
point-and-click Web GUIs Flexibility and scalability of this approach has shown on 130+ TB datasets
together covering Earth and Planetary sciences.
We will present the enabling EarthServer platform, discuss the services established, and present the
results achieved, particularly in standardization.
