How many images are in the Living Library?

To give an order of magnitude, at October 10, 2019, more than 500 000 images are online, covering more than 800 000 000 sqkm representing 2PB of data.

How long does it take for an image to be made available in the Living Library after sensing?

A newly acquired image meeting the Living Library criteria will typically be ingested in 24/48h.

How can I search for a specific location?

Using the search bar, you can search by country & city name, street address, geographic coordinates. You can also uplaod your AOI in different possible file formats.

Can you explain what is the difference between WMS and WMTS?

They are both OGC standard formats. They allow an easy use of streaming services in GIS tools or libraries. We recommend WMTS which is faster, this protocol provides a pyramid of tiles reducing waiting time for the data and bandwith.

Do I consume data when streaming the same area?

Each tile rendered by servers has the cache-control / max-age value set to 31 536 000 seconds (~1 year). It means that if the customer is using the Living Library with a web browser or if the custom implementation is using the http header properly, the tile will not be requested and charged for this period. If the cache is not properly configured, the consumption will be twice when the user streams the same data.

How to access images?

The Living Library is accessible through OneAtlas Data and API (application programming interface), in streaming and download, with multiple formats options. You can also access images by using the OneAtlas Mobile application available for Android and iOS.
The process through OneAtlas Data portal is the following:
- Draw an Area of Interest (AOI) in the viewer thanks to the Draw button
- Launch a Living Library search by clicking on the button “Living Library” appearing when AOI is drawn
- All images returned in the search results are made available for instant streaming (for this, click on eye button available for each image information)
You can also request that an image processing in order to have image in downloading from your workspace (My Data panel).
All data ordered are available for streaming or download in the format chosen.
