IBM has recently announced the launch of an experimental cloud based service called PAIRS Geoscope. This service is aimed at simplifying work for developers regarding processing large amounts of geospatial data grabbed from innumerable sources.
Welcoming a Much Needed Updated Geospatial Data Processer
PAIRS Geoscope is a new experimental cloud-based service that is mainly launched for making it easier for developers to work with large geospatial data volumes. This service mainly deals with integrating, inputting, and managing data that has been derived from GPS units. The output information helps in attaining reliable answers about queries regarding the working processes of the GPS systems being monitored.
PAIRS Geoscope is an IBM product, and this service is highly anticipated to be different from other data analytics services. Any bit of information such as Internet-of-Things based geotagged data, sensor data, weather data, census details, aerial image data, along with news and tweets made managed by the GDELT Project backed by Google. A recent paper was published by IBM showcasing in detail the integration of how the PAIRS Geoscope processes work. The most crucial feature of the PAIRS Geoscope system is the ability to convert data into all commonly used formats and units, along with automatically aligning the spatial data. This is highly important from a developer’s perspective, wherein the use of any format might be needed in varying situations.
According to IBM, a web-based interface is provided to access the service, wherein it becomes easy to select different layers, work on them, and bring them together to create new combinations of data. This system has been specifically made for working with geospatial-temporal information.
Those interested in this technology can get a sneak peak on the project’s homepage. Using any public data sets in the service library is free for now. The process of using the service is explained quite clearly over here and is very easy to handle.
