The Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC) is implementing the development of data and information service with the user's needs which is part of the "Development of technologies for the practical application of earth observation data" as one of the objective of the Data Integration and Analysis System (DIAS).
As a part of our activities, we provide sample integration and analysis products on this site. We are always open to hearing suggestions for the way of use of the products and providing dataset and so forth.
Among the objectives of "Development and research agenda for the conversion of earth observation data to scientifically and socially useful information", we are making available the following sample products and application examples to the public..
The purpose of the Data Integration and Analysis System (DIAS) is to contribute to the establishment of the "A System of Systems" which is declared in the GEOSS 10-years Implementation Plan.
"DIAS" is a part of the Earth Observation and Ocean Exploration System under the National Key Technologies and it will collect a wide variety of observational data, and integrate and analyze them, and then provide data which are converted into scientifically and socially useful information such as data for analyzing factors responsible for climate changes in order to increase understanding of Earth processes, and promote prediction of the behavior of the Earth system.
DIAS was completed in March 2011 and moved to the Data Integration and Analysis System Project 2011-2015 (DIAS-P).
