The Climate, Environment and Monitoring from Space (CEMS) facility at the Satellite Applications Catapult in Harwell, Oxford, is a unique, purpose-built service offering space-based climate change and Earth observation (EO) data and services in conjunction with Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud-based computing. The Catapult provides CEMS in collaboration with the Centre for Environmental Data Analysis (CEDA) for space and non-space communities interested in working with satellite-derived data and applications.
The advantages of using CEMS include access to a range of specialised applications and tools that can help you analyse the data more efficiently. In addition, processing time is greatly reduced, as your compute power is based alongside the data, removing the need to download large volumes of data to your own physical infrastructure.
