System architecture of the developed data processing middleware


  • Establishing a multi-source data processing middleware for land observations
  • Implementing additional and individual processing steps for integrated data
  • Providing standard-compliant visualization, access, and download services for time-series data
  • Fostering near real-time monitoring of land processes.

Data Sources:

  • Earth Observation Data
    • Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS)
    • Landsat (planned)
    • External product archives (e.g. Geoland2, GlobSnow) (planned)
  • In-situ Climate Data
    • Integrated Surface Database (ISD) (in development)
    • Global Surface Summary of the Day (GSOD)
    • Global Historical Climatology Network - Daily (GHCN) (planned)


  • Development of Data Processing Middleware
    • Data Integration
    • Data Provision
  • Integration of statistical analysis and processing functions
    • GIS Backend
    • Statistical Analysis (e.g. Bfast)
  • User-defined Monitoring of Land Processes
