Since 2010, we’ve been working with scientists and data providers at NASA, NOAA, and USGS to help improve their remote sensing data systems through better processing pipelines, metadata, and improved user experiences. A large part of that effort was aimed at improving time-to-science—reducing the amount of time spent downloading, processing, and preparing data versus actually using that data to answer a scientific question.
Last month Jeff Siarto, our Director of User Experience, went on the MapScaping Podcast to discuss the topic of user experience and user interface design in geospatial. He touched on the topic of “reducing time to science” and also discussed the importance of UX in remote sensing systems, design standardization in geospatial, and data science infrastructure-as-a-commodity.
