High and Low Tide Composites, a Digital Earth Australia product providing cloud-free imagery mosaics of Australia’s coast, estuaries and reefs at low and high tide.
Intertidal Extents Model, a Digital Earth Australia product that maps the relative extent of the Australian intertidal zone at regular intervals of the observed tidal range.
Nadir-corrected BRDF Adjusted Reflectance, where BRDF stands for Bidirectional reflectance distribution function.
Nadir-corrected BRDF Adjusted Reflectance with terrain illumination reflectance correction.
The Australian National Computational Infrastructure is Australia’s national research computing facility. It provides computing facilities for use by Australian researchers, industry and government. For more information see http://www.nci.org.au/.
National Intertidal Digital Elevation Model, a Digital Earth Australia product derived from ITEM that maps the elevation relative to Mean Sea Level of the Australian intertidal zone.
Open Data Cube, an international open-source project developing the technology that powers Digital Earth Australia. For more information see http://opendatacube.org/ .
The high performance database engine used as an index of Datasets by the Data Cube. It is both a relational and document database, and the Data Cube schema makes use of both of these capabilities.
The programming language used to develop the Data Cube. It is easy to use while still allowing high performance access and processing capabilities. See http://www.python.org/ for more.
