The increasing availability of EO data and growing demand for accessing long-term (current and historic), cross-mission data from EO facilities (online and archived) makes it necessary to evolve technologies for long-term data management considering data consolidation, preservation, and continuation across multiple missions that would allow for more efficient access and use. Current solutionsare often storage-optimised and focus on single missions while the data accessibility and use is seen as a next and independent step only or even not considered at all introducing limitations at the level of functionality or in terms of time. The objective of proposed activity is to investigate and develop access-and-use-optimised solutions at the level of data management to overcome limitations of todays storage-optimised data repository implementations.The activity shall evolve archiving structures and data models that facilitate efficient and user-friendly bulk (cross-mission) data selection, retrieval, processing, visualisation, as well as displaying and downloading data layers served by standardized spatial data services. Technology areas to be addressed include bulk data ingestion, data discovery, integration of data access and processing services, data manipulation and re-formatting, on-line visualisation, scalability and security.
