Data visualisation and analytics collaboration: Takiwā


The Science Payload Operations Centre (SPOC) is partnering with the data visualisation and analytics platform Takiwā to provide interactive data browsing tools for various payload missions coming online soon, including the science data from Rongowai.

The Rongowai showcase event on the 11th August 2021 demonstrated the potential of the SPOC-Takiwā collaboration by providing interactive visualisations of a number of datasets relevant to climate monitoring in New Zealand – including missions such as Rongowai, CYGNSS, Landsat-8, SMAP, and Sentinel-2. The event provided a crucial first investigation into how the wealth of available remote sensing data can be retrieved, processed, and visualised, with over 200GB of satellite data being crunched for the showcase.

We look forward to coming up with solutions together to solve the issue of exploring large and complementary datasets with relative ease.
