A new approach for spatial data analysis and processing was elaborated at the Geophysical Center of RAS (GC RAS). It is based on the creation of integrated geoinformation environment. It implements the functions of processing, analysis and representation of spatial data for joint interdisciplinary research in geosciences. This approach implies the combination of GIS technologies and algorithmic program tools, based on discrete mathematical analysis methods.
A significant selection of geoscience datasets is stored at GC RAS. The GC RAS's geodata base currently includes more than 230 thematic layers within 19 data categories including remote sensing data. The geodata base includes Nighttime lights of the Earth (1992-2010), Global Ocean Data Assimilation Experiment (GODAE) High Resolution Sea Surface Temperature (GHRSST-PP) (1981-2009).
Keywords: remote sensing, geoinformation systems, GIS, spatial data, geodata processing, discrete mathematical analysis, remote sensing
