AbstractSAFORAH is a distributed network of data storage facilities presented as a single archive that enables users to upload and download remote sensing data. It is built with advanced grid computing technology. The SAFORAH data grid currently connects four regional Canadian Forest Service centres, the Environment Canada National Wildlife Research Centre, and the University of Victoria Department of Physics' petabyte data store. There are currently more than 2200 Landsat remote sensing images (3 TB) which are housed at the University of Victoria data storage facility. Registered users query the metadata, download or upload data with the CUDOS web portal (Catalogue and User Ordering System – CUDOS).
