Geoinformation system with algorithmic shell as a new tool for Earth sciencesA. Beriozko, R. Krasnoperov, A. Lebedev, A. Rybkina and A. Soloviev Geophysical Center RAS, Moscow, Russia
A new technology was elaborated, which combines geographical information system (GIS) technologies with GIS-oriented algorithmic methods of pattern recognition (PR). Numerous thematic data layers for geosciences, provided by Russian and international scientific institutions and data sources were imported into the GIS. Technology and software for the integration of PR methods within within the integrated geoinformation environment was developed in the form of the Centralized Catalogue of Geodata Processing Algorithms (CCGPA).
A GIS visualization subsystem was created to provide interaction between the system and its users. It includes geodata layers visualization, map operations, geodata set management and representation of CCGPA-stored algorithm application results.
