Data mining & Data FusionAs producers, curators, and users of scientific data, we know that when data are processed in ways meaningful to end users, their value increases. SSAI creates and maintains innovative approaches to mining data and developing data products that are useful. We are exploring and piloting new, open-source data fusion technologies, and we provide technical assessments of these tools as well. SSAI also collaborates with instrument and data mission teams to develop tools and techniques to verify the quality of data products.
For example, SSAI has led the development of several improved search capabilities for various science missions at NASA. Atmospheric data being retrieved from the CALIPSO and CERES instruments are made more accessible with sophisticated subsetter applications developed by SSAI.
