What is Naiad ?


Naiad is a system designed by the Center for Satellite Exploitation and Research (CERSAT) at Ifremer to search, visualize and extract relevant data from massive archives.

The Naiad system is a powerful and open framework for the search and discovery within massive multi-mission satellite data archives. It is intended to be used as a data portal in the frame of projects such as Ocean & Sea-Ice SAF, of GMES/MyOcean and many other contexts. It provides unique features such as multi-criteria and content-oriented data queries, sub-setting, re-gridding, visualization and automatic generation and dissemination of customized products directly to users and it is based on existing standards for data exchange (OpenDAP). It greatly facilitates, through advanced thematic indexing of the data content (and not only shape or coverage) the search and extraction of swath data and the implementation of advanced data mining applications.
