Paper “Agora-EO: A Unified Ecosystem for Earth Observation – A Vision for Boosting EO Data Literacy“ Accepted for Presentation at BiDS 2021

The paper “Agora-EO: A Unified Ecosystem for Earth Observation – A Vision for Boosting EO Data Literacy,” by Arne de Wall, Björn Deiseroth, Eleni Tzirita Zacharatou, Jorge-Arnulfo Quiane-Ruiz, Begüm Demir, and Volker Markl was accepted for presentation at the upcoming 2021 Big Data from Space (BiDS’21) conference. BiDS’21 will take place the week of May 18-20, 2021 as a virtual event and is co-organized by the European Space Agency (ESA), the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission, and the European Union Satellite Centre (SatCen).

Abstract:
Today, interoperability among EO exploitation platforms is almost inexistent as most of them rely on a heterogeneous set of technologies with varying interfaces and data formats. Thus, it is crucial to enable cross-platform (federated) analytics to make EO technology easily accessible to everyone. We envision AgoraEO, an EO ecosystem for sharing, finding, composing, and executing EO assets, such as datasets, algorithms, and tools. Making AgoraEO a reality is challenging for several reasons, the main ones being that the ecosystem must provide interactive response times and operate seamlessly over multiple exploitation platforms. In this paper, we discuss the different challenges that AgoraEO poses as well as our ideas to tackle them. We believe that having an open, unified EO ecosystem would foster innovation and boost EOdata literacy for the entire population.
