Benefits include visualising historic aerial images and flood maps.
By helping environmental scientists track threats to wildlife habitats, HP is also demonstrating the full range of its technologies and services.
This is one data set that a federal agency is keen to make public.
NSA snooping and the Patriot Act have raised thoughts about storing cloud data with non-American companies and outside the USA. Norway's Jottacloud is pitching for that business…
NASA's Nicholas Skytland explains how NASA had to build its own big data capabilities and how it's dealing with the enormous data sets from space missions.
Nicholas Skytland, program manager for NASA's Open Innovation Program, argues that workers will need to be big data literate in the future.
Global Earth scientists remain a challenge - but with the opening of a new data access facility, NASA hopes to launch the next chapter of discovery.
The weather data and monitoring company will team with Radiometrics to get a better handle on temperature, humidity and liquid conditions in the earth's atmospheric layer.
It's 600 light years away, twice the size of Earth and has the unassuming name of Kepler-22b. But Nasa says that the planet is the first we've found, apart from our own, that could have liquid water on its surface — in other words, it orbits its star in a habitable zone.
NASA predicts that the debris is due to fall back to Earth sometime between Sept. 23 and 25th.
Boonsri Dickinson visits Geoff Marcy’s lab at the University of California at Berkeley to hunt for Earth-like planets. Using the Keck telescope in Hawaii and data from the Kepler telescope, Marcy can detect planets millions of miles away.
NASA scientists for the first time can track the effects of a solar storm on Earth, offering new advancements in our ability to predict space weather and how it will impact our electronics.
The biggest threat to Earth? Something hitting it, said Ed Lu, a former NASA astronaut and chairman of the B612 Foundation.
SAP and Google are expanding a partnership to take large data sets and integrate them into Google Maps, Earth, Docs and other products.
