A Minimalistic Way to Tackle Big Data Produced by Earth Observation Satellites

The explosion of Earth Observation (EO) data has driven the need to find innovative ways for using that data. We sat down with Grega Milcinski from Sinergise to discuss Sentinel-2. During its six month pre-operational phase, Sentintel-2 has already produced more than 200 TB of data, more than 250 trillion pixels, yet the major part of this data is never used at all, probably up to 90 percent.
