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. Technology developed by the collaboration include:

  • The Namibia Flood Dashboard.
  • MapReduced based analytics for identifying floods and CO2 concentrations.
  • Using elastic infrastructure-as-a-service to create Level 1 images each day.
  • A Hadoop-based OGC-compliant tiling service and Web MapService.
