How It Works
HPMB needed to automatically generate a variety of image products from a broad range of satellite data to allow users to easily browse, download and visualize the results.
The HPMB platform can support and display the following major satellite data and weather sources: FY3-VIRR/MERSI, MODIS, NPP-VIIRS, geo-stationary satellites such as FY-4 and Himawari-8, and high-resolution satellites such as GF1, GF2 and more.
The remote sensing platform also includes data catalog tools for querying, browsing and downloading data. Further, the data analysis and statistical reporting can also be conducted and visualized online. These on-demand statistical analysis can be conducted by spatial extents of province, city and county, and by monthly or annual temporal extents to see trends in the data.
ENVI supplies the enterprise components and framework, aligning the data, analytics and computing power in the cloud. The service architecture and ENVI analysis engines are then used by web clients to access and analyze on-demand remotely sensed data. Relying on ENVI analytics and ENVI Enterprise, HPMB’s server-level remote sensing platform can automatically generate twelve thematic product dataset results including: water body regional analysis; urban heat islands; aerosol hot spots; vegetation analysis; forest fire locations; and a meteorological evaluation of the overall ecological quality within Hubei Province.
Users can complete complex and specialized remote sensing image analysis and generate a thematic result by completing the following steps online:
- Browse the web portal and select an area or time range of interest
- View the results of available data and thematic output options
- Select the desired thematic output result, data set and view associated statistics
- Submit the request to the ENVI enterprise job manager for processing
- View the thematic data result online
Once the analysis is completed, the output results, maps, and statistics can be viewed online.
