Earth on AWS opens access to large geospatial datasets
Amazon Web Services has launched Earth on AWS, a new landing page that highlights large geospatial datasets made openly available in the cloud as AWS Public Datasets as well as resources to learn how to build planetary-scale applications in the cloud with open geospatial data. In addition to previously launched, Landsat, NEXRAD, and SpaceNet datasets, new datasets made up of high resolution aerial imagery, global event information, and global elevation data are now available.
AWS is also opening a call for proposals from researchers to receive promotional Cloud Credits for Research to work with Earth observation data on AWS. Learn more at https://aws.amazon.com/earth.
