Destination Earth Service Platform
The Destination Earth Service Platform (DESP) is the point of entry to DestinE. It provides users, applications and service providers with direct access to the data and functionalities provided by the other two DestinE components, the Digital Twin Engine and the Data Lake.
Supporting DestinE data exploitation for better decision-making
The DestinE Core Service Platform integrates and operates an open ecosystem of services (also referred to as the DESP Framework) to support DestinE-data exploitation and information sharing for the benefit of DestinE users and Third-Party entities.
The DESP includes key essential services such as user management service; infrastructure as a service with storage, network, and CPU/GPU capabilities; data access and retrieval service, in particular from the DestinE Data Lake operated by EUMETSAT, as it is the backbone for the data generated by the ECMWF’s Digital Twin Engine; data traceability and harmonization services; basic software suite service for local data exploitation; data and software catalogue services; and a 2D/3D data visualisation service.
The DESP additionally provides onboarding support for integrating external services and resources, making the ecosystem flexible, scalable, and easily adapted to the community needs.
The DestinE ecosystem aims to support the needs of a large and diverse community of users including citizens, scientists and academics, commercial entities, and policy makers. The DESP Framework defines the required conditions for a service to be part of the ecosystem, and therefore benefit of the available resources, and of the potential to engage with all DestinE users.
