Integrated Satellite Data System


  • To deliver gridded satellite data products to the Australian Marine Research Community.


  • To deliver data in near real time.

  • To automatically catalogue data sets.

  • To automatically manage meta-data.

  • To deliver time series data.

  • To provide data in a number of formats

Web Service Interface

OPeNDAP Interface

Web Query Service

Spatial Database

Metadata Harvester

OPeNDAP Servers

Australian Oceans DAAC GUI (beta)

  • incremental development

  • AJAX technology

  • Enhancements

  • Add more datasets with improved selection menu

  • Add a description for each dataset

  • Add a status indicator

  • Improve error indicators

  • Allow multiple requests

  • Add simple visualisation


  • We have build a system which can deliver satellite derived marine data products in near real time

  • The system is layered and can be accessed a number of ways

  • The system automatically harvests metadata information

  • The system has been built by reutilising existing technologies with some “glue” and the development of an aggregator and GUI

  • The system supports standards
