Big Data Analytics

Session ID#: 24747

Session Description:
Big Data pose great challenges for Earth and Space sciences. Cloud Computing emerged as a promising solution for supporting Big Data analytics in areas such as climate science, ocean science, atmospheric science, planetary science, and other geoscience domains for model simulation, data management, information mining, decision support, knowledge discovery and visualization. As a follow-on to the 2016 success at AGU, this session is to capture the latest on applying Cloud Computing for Big Data Analytical problems in all Earth and space domains. Topics include experiments, demonstration, studies, methods, solutions and solution discussion on:

  • Solutions for big data analytics
  • Big data management and mining
  • Application of open source technologies
  • Automated techniques for data analysis
  • Browser-based data analytics and visualization
  • Real time decision support

Contributions that fuse participatory social learning into the Geoscience R&D processes are also welcome.
