Abstract: Big Data from Space refers to Earth and Space observation data collected by space-borne and ground-based sensors. Whether for Earth or Space observation, they qualify being called ’big data’ given the sheer volume of sensed data (archived data reaching the exabyte scale), their high velocity (new data is acquired on a continuous basis and with an increasing rate), their variety (data is delivered by sensors acting over various frequencies of the electromagnetic spectrum in passive and active modes), as well as their veracity (sensed data is associated with uncertainty and accuracy measurements and extracted information needs to be validated). Last but not least, the value of Big Data from Space depends on our capacity to extract information and meaning from them.
