Number:
VC-18-01
Title:
Evaluate CARD4L supply;user access;and user experiences via pilot activities (e.g.;with Digital Earth Africa;LSI-Forests & Biomass;LSI-GEOGLAM;Mekong Data Cube)
Status:
Open
Creation Year:
2018
Completion Date:
2022 Q4 (468 days remaining)
Description:
The completion of the CARD4L Product Family Specifications is just one milestone in the CEOS effort to lower the barrier to broad utilisation of space-based data; hurdles remain in relation to data production;accessibility;and usability in particular. Unless CARD4L is produced systematically;easily accessible at volume;compatible with varied existing work flows;and guaranteed to be sustained into the future;the benefits of the Specifications will not be realised. This task is intended to cover aspects such as: ? CARD4L production from multiple instruments across the spectrum of available PFS; ? routine publishing of this CARD4L via agency data portals;cloud data stores;other data aggregators/platforms; and, ? investigation and implementation of new data paradigms such as COGs and STAC for CARD4L usability and discoverability. Digital Earth Africa has been agreed as an initial focal point;however this task is by no means exclusive to this initiative. GFOI;GEOGLAM;and other activities may also present opportunities for CARD4L supply and user access trials.

September 2018: LSI-VC engaged a range of stakeholders (including the GFOI, GEOGLAM, and Open Data Cube communities) via a survey to gather feedback on CARD4L. 22 responses were received, yielding substantial feedback for the annual updates of the PFS as well as on the CARD4L concept in general.VC-31 will remain open in the 2019-2021 CEOS Work Plan (due Q4 2019), however two specific sub-points will be added to reflect the planned CARD4L pilot activities (e.g., with SDCG for GFOI) and also the continuation and expansion of the CARD4L survey.

September 2019:

  • LSI-VC is working with its subgroups to explore opportunities for CARD4L supply and user access trials. SDCG-GFOI in particular will work via USGS/SilvaCarbon to explore opportunities for forest pilots. JAXA has expressed interest in running CARD4L pilots using ALOS-2 data through its Asia-RiCE (GEOGLAM) network.
  • LSI-VC will contribute to the CEOS Paper on the Interplay of Industry and CEOS ARD (CEOS ARD Strategy Task 2.3) and this is expected to result in recommended changes to the PFS regarding COG and STAC technologies.
  • Agencies are completing their CARD4L self-assessments. In parallel, USGS is progressing the implementation of Landsat Collection 2 (expected to be CARD4L, hosted in the cloud). ESA Sentinel-2 data (also expected to be CARD4L compliant) is available on the open access hub and various mirrors (public, private, cloud, etc.).
