D 2.1 Requirements Analysis Report

This Requirements Analysis Report summarises the identified requirements to implement and operate successfully these spatial-temporal Big Data Analytics services for a wide range of stakeholders. These stakeholders represent today’s major scientific domains, which are challenged by overly large volumes of geospatial data. These include the Earth-Observation, Climate/Meteorology, Marine and Planetary domains. The stakeholders require services that involve usage, deployment and administration of this data. The sources of input include activities from the Copernicus program, such as the Copernicus Climate Data Store (CDS), part of the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S).

Contacts were established with other user groups, which will provide input to requirements for the duration of the project.

This report describes the progress of identifying requirements and lists the 123 identified requirements already collected, as well as highlighting some of the special challenges this project tries to address.
