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.
- Regionally focused dashboards such as the Namibia Flood Dashboard.
- A Science Algorithm Server (WCPS) for processing individual scenes.
- A "Wheel" of analytics for processing large amounts of data and generating reports.
- An available images map to help you find data of interest.
- Access to raw data in the OSDC Public Data Commons.
