The MELODIES Project: Integrating diverse data using linked data and cloud computing

Conference abstract

The successful MELODIES abstract for the Big Data from Space Conference.

We present an overview of the MELODIES project, which is developing new data-intensive environmental services based on data from Earth Observation satellites, government databases, national and European agencies and more. We focus here on the capabilities and benefits of the project’s “technical platform”, which applies cloud computing and Linked Data technologies to enable the development of these services, providing flexibility and scalability.
