I am new on the forum. I am interested in finding out if there is anyone here working on a scientific data archive of nano-satellite earth observations.
I saw there are multiple threads on satellite observations, but I gather these are more to do with picking up signals from satellites rather than transforming data into information for scientific research.
I have a background in Astrophysics, and I have worked on multiple scientific archives at ESA. My last project with ESA was the Planetary Science Archive which aimed to harmonise various platenary mission data (Mars express, Cluster, Chandrayaan from India’s ISRO and so on), by validating each mission’s dataset against a meta-data dictionary. We built a tool that enabled instrument teams to build a dataset that would conform to this dictionary and that could therefore be ingested into the PSA database. Establishing such a standard enabled a set of APIs for searching/sharing/cross-referencing datasets from unrelated missions.
I am wondering if such an effort exists in the field of open-source nano-satellite observation.
