Management of the Test Site/In-Situ Data Integrated into Space Information
This paper is dedicated to the management of space information. The Test Site/In-Situ (TS/In-Situ) Data are integrated into space information processing stage in the case of lack of ground-based/filed data, which is important for verification of space image processing. Remote sensing (RS) is the method opening a possibility to observe record and collect information about objects or features on the Earth remotely from distance. The goal of remote sensing method is to extract the information that is directly related to a management process, which creates opportunity to efficiently adapt to the data ultimately interested for further decision-making purpose. A success and accuracy in challenging of expectations depends on how efficiently would be structured the method of multilevel data collection from space-borne and ground-based/field observation systems. In some cases, there is a limitation to the access of the ground-based/field data of investigated area. The main purpose of the paper is to recommend how to cover existing gap and limitation of the ground-based/field data. The conceptual method of the data collection process from the TS/In-situ with further integration into space data, which is inherent part of the space information processing as an evidence of validation of used technology, is described. The result offered approach demonstrates the philosophy and conceptual aspects of use of the Test Site/In-situ data. It is the vital problem in space data processing when the ground-based/field data is not accessible. Conclusion of suggested conceptual method demonstrates solution of the lack of ground-based/field data problem as well as achievement of multilevel data access, which advances in increasing accuracy of the data processing.
