Abstract
This paper describes a new platform for geospatial data analysis. The main purpose is to explore new ways to visualize and interact with multidimensional satellite data and computed models from various Earth Observation missions. The new V-MANIP platform facilitates a multidimensional exploring approach that allows to view the same dataset in multiple viewers at the same time to efficiently find and explore interesting features within the shown data. The platform provides visual analytics capabilities including viewers for displaying 2D or 3D data representations, as well as for volumetric input data. Via a simple configuration file the system can be configured for different stakeholder use cases, by defining desired data sources and available viewer modules. The system architecture, which will be discussed in this paper in detail, uses Open Geospatial Consortium web service interfaces to allow an easy integration of new visualization modules. The implemented software is based on open source libraries and uses modern web technologies to provide a platform-independent, plugin-free user experience.
