Big data and remote sensing: a new software of ingestion

Badr-Eddine Boudriki Semlali, Chaker El Amrani


Currently, remote sensing is widely used in environmental monitoring applications, mostly air quality mapping and climate change supervision. However, satellite sensors occur massive volumes of data in near-real-time, stored in multiple formats and are provided with high velocity and variety. Besides, the processing of satellite big data is challenging. Thus, this study aims to approve that satellite data are big data and proposes a new big data architecture for satellite data processing. The developed software is enabling an efficient remote sensing big data ingestion and preprocessing. As a result, the experiment results show that 86 percent of the unnecessary daily files are discarded with a data cleansing of 20 percent of the erroneous and inaccurate plots. The final output is integrated into the Hadoop system, especially the HDFS, HBase, and Hive, for extra calculation and processing.
