Brazil Data Cube is a research, development and technological innovation project of the National Institute for Space Research (INPE), Brazil. It is producing data sets from big volumes of medium-resolution remote sensing images for the entire national territory and developing a computational platform to process and analyze these data sets using artificial intelligence, machine learning and image time series analysis.
The data sets produced in the BDC project include collections of analysis-ready data (ARD), multidimensional data cubes and mosaics from images of the CBERS-4/4A, Sentinel-2 and Landsat-8 satellites. The computational platform is composed of web services, software applications and iterative computing environments. Using artificial intelligence, machine learning, and image time series analysis, land use and land cover maps are being produced from these data cubes.
Brazil Data Cube is part of the “Environmental Monitoring of Brazilian Biomes project“, funded by the Amazon Fund through the financial collaboration of the Brazilian Development Bank (BNDES) and the Foundation for Science, Technology and Space Applications (FUNCATE) no. 17.2.0536.1 .
