OCC Project Matsu

An open source project for cloud-based processing of satellite imagery to support the earth sciences

Project Matsu

Project Matsu is a collaboration between NASA and the Open Cloud Consortium to develop open source technology for cloud-based processing of satellite imagery to support the earth sciences. The goals of Project Matsu are to

  • Develop an open source cloud-based infrastructure to process earth satellite image data with Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC)- compliant services.
  • Develop parallel algorithms using Hadoop's MapReduce and related frameworks to detect floods, fires, and other events for disaster assistance and relief.
  • Operate persistent cloud-based services that process satellite image data and make both the data and resulting reports available to the research community and general public.
