After weeks of hard work, the Swiss Data Cube team is pleased to announce the realease of the version 1.5 of the SDC.
The architecture design is much more modular using Docker and will facilitate future upgrades of the SDC. We would like to thanks our colleagues from the Brazil Data Cube for their appreciated support.
Here is what’s new:
- [upgrade] to the latest datacube-core version 1.8.6
- [upgrade] from Jupyter Notebooks to JupyterHub to facilitate user management. Now every user has its own working space: https://jupyterhub.swissdatacube.org
- [new] Data Cube Explorer – a web-based tool to explore the collections provided by the Swiss Data Cube: https://explorer.swissdatacube.org/
- [new] STAC interface – the SpatioTemporal Asset Catalog (STAC) specification provides a common language to describe a range of geospatial information, so it can more easily be indexed and discovered. A ‘spatiotemporal asset’ is any file that represents information about the earth captured in a certain space and time: https://explorer.swissdatacube.org/stac
- [new] OGC services – All SDC data are now accessible using the OGC WMS, WMTS and WCS standards: https://ows.swissdatacube.org
- [new] Datasets – CORINE Land Cover Europe (https://land.copernicus.eu/pan-european/corine-land-cover), Corine Land Cover Switzerland 1990 (https://www.wsl.ch/en/projects/corine-switzerland.html, as Switzerland was not covered by European dataset in 1999), Swiss Land Use Statistics (https://www.bfs.admin.ch/bfs/en/home/services/geostat/swiss-federal-statistics-geodata/land-use-cover-suitability/swiss-land-use-statistics.html) as well as Aster GDEM v3 (https://asterweb.jpl.nasa.gov/GDEM.asp) & swissALTI3D (https://www.swisstopo.admin.ch/en/geodata/height/alti3d.html) at 2 meter resolution are now available as new collections.
The next release will be the new version 2.0 that will index new data sources such as Landsat Collection 2 (Surface Reflectance and Temperature, including the newly released Landsat 9); Sentinel-5P; and much more…
