Utilizing Cloud Infrastructure and Annotation Tools to Manage Complex and Voluminous Oceanographic Data Files.

Session ID#: 28447

Session Description:
Oceanographic expeditions now routinely utilize data collection tools such multibeam sonars, autonomous and remotely operated vehicles equipped with high resolution video cameras, and a variety of robust robotic platforms for data collection. The large volume of files, high data collection rates, and complexity of data sets of imagery, video, and high data density acoustics, for example, particularly pose a unique set of challenges which may limit or prohibit the use and reuse of these data sets. Utilizing cloud computing and storage as well as automated and semi-automated annotation tools are some mechanisms for enabling wider access and better utilization of these large and complex data sets. This goal of this session is to hear from scientific researchers and practitioners on how the utilization of annotation tools and cloud architecture has increased their capability and capacity for handling, analyzing, visualizing, annotating, and extracting knowledge from such datasets. Abstracts should be submitted from projects that have successfully utilized annotation tools to analyze underwater imagery or video, improved annotation schema/tools/processes, improved correlations of imagery or video data with additional oceanographic data, and/or utilized cloud infrastructure in unique ways.
