Welcome to rasdaman,
the Scalable Multi-Dimensional Array Analytics Server!
This is the website of the rasdaman ("raster data manager") open-source project. Rasdaman is a domain-neutral Array Database System: it extends standard relational database systems with the ability to store and retrieve multi-dimensional raster data ( arrays) of unlimited size through an SQL-style query language. On such sensor, image, simulation, and statistics data appearing, e.g., in earth, space, and life science applications rasdaman allows to quickly set up array-intensive services which are distinguished by their flexibility, speed, and scalability. Rasdaman embeds itself smoothly into PostgreSQL.
Next-Generation Geo Raster Server. Rasdaman is brought to you by the guys writing the geo raster standards, including OGC WCS and WCPS, the OGC raster query language. The Petascope component of rasdaman provides service interfaces based on the OGC WCS, WCPS, WCS-T, and WPS. For several of these, rasdaman will be reference implementation. Since April 2011, rasdaman is available on the OSGeo Live DVD. A GDAL rasdaman driver is available, and likewise a MapServer integration (beta). A PostGIS query language integration is under work, see our planning. In comparison to PostGIS Raster, rasdaman scales and supports n-D instead of 2-D.
EarthLook is a demonstration site showcasing rasdaman in a variety of 1-D to 4-D geo use cases.
