The “order and download” paradigm is dying. NASA and other organizations are moving their data holdings to the cloud and future missions will be producing so much data–petabytes per year in some cases–that the old way of viewing, subsetting, and analyzing this information needs to adapt. As this data grows in size and complexity, it demands more usable, accessible, and thoughtful designs and user interfaces that support science and help researchers answer important questions. This session will focus on how we’re developing better user interfaces that utilize remote sensing data–especially in a cloud environment, and the impact user experience plays on the search, discovery, and analysis of Earth science data.

Title: Earthdata Search UX Lessons Learned
Abstract: Crafting a great user experience is hard. Crafting a great user experience for Earth science applications is fraught with challenges. From the variability in metadata to the experience profile of various users the possible permutations of use cases introduce layer upon layer of complexities that must be designed against. In this session, the Earthdata Search team would like to highlight lessons learned over the lifespan of the application — the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Talk: Sentinel Hub Apps - Designing UI on EO API
Abstract: Sentinel Hub was one of the first truly interactive web services providing insight in global archive of EO data. The API needed some applications to demonstrate its power so we ended up coding these as well, starting with Postcards from the Space, Sentinel Playground and eventually EO Browser, each bringing the experience one level further. We will walk through the process of designing each of these and share some ideas for the future.

Title: How Dynamic Tiling meets OGC Standards
Abstract: For the Multi-Mission Algorithm and Analysis Platform (MAAP), ESA and NASA have adopted the OGC standards for data access, data processing and data visualization to enable the sharing of ESA and NASA datasets. The data visualization component of the platform must be able to visualize both NASA and ESA archives, presenting challenges to being OGC compliant to WMTS and WMS standards while NASA leverages a dynamic tiling backend.

Title: Evolving UMM-Var To Improve How Users Can Access NASA EOSDIS Data Sets
Abstract: The UMM-Variables (Var) Metadata Model has been evolved to support an End-to-End Services (E2E) capability, which enables variable level subsetting, data transformation, and data reformatting. This talk will discuss what is new with the model, how users can get their metadata ready for the E2E capability, and include a demo of how the model is being used to drive and improve the user experience in Earthdata Search when accessing EOSDIS data sets.
