Open Source Tools
FilmDrop is built on a suite of open source projects and standards used across the commercial and public sector geospatial industry. Check out our current FilmDrop open source tools.Cirrus on Github STAC on Github
Ingest to Analysis (Core)
FilmDrop can help you manage all aspects of your data pipeline from ground station and S3 ingest through processing and analysis.
STAC Compliant (Core)
All archived metadata in FilmDrop is stored as SpatioTemporal Asset Catalog (STAC) assets for broad interoperability with tooling and industry partners.
Choose your own Adventure (Core/DR)
FilmDrop is flexible and can support deployment to the AWS Cloud, Kubernetes, and even field-deployable packages like the Snowball, Snowcone, and Snowball Edge.
Plays Well with Others (Core)
Generate ephemeral archives of convenience (AoC) and custom pipelines to make your data more useable. Support for STAC, NetCDF, HDFx, COGs, Zarr, and more.
FilmDrop Analytics supports a notebook-based interface for programmatic access to FilmDrop Core datalakes. Depending on end-user needs, customized dashboards and visualizations for data analysis can also be built.
