IceExplorer – The visual interface for Cryosat data products

Project Description

Earthwave built the ‘IceExplorer’ – a web based visual data sharing platform to make Cryosat-2 data products available for download and data exploration. Components include (1) a Graphical User Interface (GUI) with spatial visualisation and the functionality to download data, (2) a web Application Programming Interface (API) to download data directly and (3) a tool for researchers to add new data via a command-line utility. A User-centred Design (UCD) approach was applied to ensure usability and investigate the importance of visualisation for spatial data sharing.
