HySpeed computing is proud to announce the coming launch of HyPhoon:
- A gateway for the access and exchange of datasets, applications and knowledge.
- A pathway for you to expand your impact and extend your community outreach.
- A framework for the development and deployment of scientific applications.
- A resource for obtaining and sharing geospatial datasets.
- A mechanism for improved technology transfer.
- A marketplace for scientific computing.
The initial HyPhoon release, coming soon in mid-2013, will focus on providing the community with free and open access to remote sensing datasets. This data will be available for the community to use in research projects, class assignments, algorithm development, application testing and validation, and in some cases also commercial applications. In other words, in the spirit of encouraging innovation, these datasets are offered as a community resource and open to your creativity. We look forward to seeing what you accomplish.
We’ll be announcing the official HyPhoon release here, so stay tuned to be the first to access the data as soon as it becomes available!
Our objective when developing these datasets has been to focus on quality rather than any predefined set of content requirements. Thus, dataset contents are variable. Many of the datasets include a combination of imagery, validation data, and example output. Some datasets include imagery of the same area acquired using different sensors, different resolutions, or different dates. And other datasets simply include unique image examples.
The datasets originate largely from the community itself. In some cases data also originates from public domain repositories as well as from commercial image providers. We are also interested in hearing your thoughts on new datasets that will benefit the community. Contact us with your ideas and if our review team approves the project then we will work with you to add your data to the gateway.
Beyond datasets, HyPhoon will also soon include a marketplace for community members to access advanced algorithms, and sell user-created applications. Are you a scientist with an innovative new algorithm? Are you a developer who can help transform research code into user applications? Are you working in the application domain and have ideas for algorithms that would benefit your work? Are you looking to reach a larger audience and expand your impact on the community? If so, we encourage you to get involved in our community.
