Over the years, rapidly developing satellite technologies have greatly increased the amount and size of data; e.g. high resolution imagery of 31 cm (e.g. World View 3) and even video. As satellites become increasingly more complex and remote sensing capabilities improve, the demands on faster and more accurate data processing to enable the full potential of data exploitation likewise increases. In this light, TUBITAK UZAY has developed a satellite image processing and sharing platform, dubbed GEOPORTAL, to provide the software and informatics infrastructure required to facilitate sharing and processing. GEOPORTAL also includes modules enabling critical functions, such as radiometric and geometric correction, as well as other core satellite image processing routines, to serve images in formats ready for research and remote sensing applications.


Joint Virtual Machine Embedding and Wireless Data Center Topology Management
Bütün, Beyza; Onur, Ertan; Department of Computer Engineering (2022-5-10)
With emerging technologies such as the Internet of Things and 5G, generated data grows enormously. Hence, Data Center Networks (DCNs) have an important duty to store and process a significant amount of data, which makes them a critical component of the network. To meet the massive amount of traffic demands, wired DCNs need to deploy large numbers of servers and power-hungry switches, and huge lengths of wires. An enormous increase in the usage of cables causes high cabling complexity and cost while deployin...
Statistical inference based load balanced routing in software defined networks

Networks have been the main method of transferring data for more than forty years. The traffic volumes and sizes of networks have increased considerably in the last two decades. The traditional methods used in the networks to transfer data become inefficient due to this growth. Therefore, network planning and smart delivery methods have gained importance. Accordingly, traffic engineering methods are deployed to meet the faster and more efficient delivery requirements. These methods have been proven ben...
Fuzzy spatial data cube construction and its use in association rule mining
Işık, Narin; Yazıcı, Adnan; Department of Computer Engineering (2005)
The popularity of spatial databases increases since the amount of the spatial data that need to be handled has increased by the use of digital maps, images from satellites, video cameras, medical equipment, sensor networks, etc. Spatial data are difficult to examine and extract interesting knowledge; hence, applications that assist decision-making about spatial data like weather forecasting, traffic supervision, mobile communication, etc. have been introduced. In this thesis, more natural and precise knowle...

© 2021 IFIP.Data Center Networks (DCNs) have become critical infrastructures with the enormous increase in the amount of data generated. This increase introduces some problems in DCNs such as high cabling complexity, high-level power consumption, low space utilization, and oversubscription. Wireless DCNs (WDCNs) address these problems by decreasing cabling complexity and power consumption and increasing space utilization thanks to their incorporation of wireless communication technologies. Moreover, with it...

Exponential growth in data volume originating from Internet of Things sources and information services drives the industry to develop new models and distributed tools to handle big data. In order to achieve strategic advantages, effective use of these tools and integrating results to their business processes are critical for enterprises. While there is an abundance of tools available in the market, they are underutilized by organizations due to their complexities. Deployment and usage of big data analysis t...
