Overview

The Big Earth Data Science Engineering Program (CASEarth) was officially approved on January 1, 2018, as a Strategic Priority Research Program (Class A) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) with an implementation period of five years. CASEarth aims to draw advantages from extensive resources of CAS and other units at home and abroad to develop a data sharing platform for big data and cloud services, to cater for the modern data intensive scientific applications for a wide variety of fields including resource management, environmental sciences, biology, and ecology and many others. It conducts applied fundamental research through participating scientific projects including the Digital Belt and Road, Beautiful China, Biodiversity and Ecological Security, Three-Dimensional Information Ocean, and Spatiotemporal Three-Pole Environment, with a goal to develop a state-of-the-art international Digital Earth Science Platform. The platform would promote technological innovations in the field of Big Earth Data, support major breakthroughs and scientific discoveries in Earth system sciences, enable all-round macro decision-making support and public knowledge dissemination services, and also function as a science-based decision support system for developing major strategies for regional or global sustainable development.
