VEDA: A NASA Open Source Platform for Geosciences

Webinar Speaker: Aimee Barciauskas

Development Seed / NASA IMPACT

About the Webinar

Visualization, Exploration, and Data Analysis (VEDA) is NASA’s open-source science platform for Earth science research and applications. VEDA aims to facilitate interdisciplinary science at scale by providing a lightweight and standard-based data catalog, APIs for data querying, processing, and visualization, and a managed cloud environment. The webinar will demonstrate how VEDA addresses the challenges of data processing, visualization, and exploration, especially for cloud-native data. Learn about its collaborative environment, interactive visual interface, GIS capabilities, dynamic scaling platform, and modeling infrastructure. The discussion will also include how the GRSS community can leverage VEDA for their own work.
