Proceedings of the 2014 conference on Big Data from Space is a 2014 report, published by the European Union.

The conference brought together researchers, engineers, developers, users in the area of Big Data in the space sector.

The focus is on the whole data life cycle, ranging from data acquisition by space borne and ground-based sensors to data management, analysis and exploitation in the domains of Earth Observation, Space Science, Space Engineering, Space Weather, etc.

Special emphasis is put on highlighting synergies and cross-fertilization opportunities.

Big Data from Space is an emerging domain given the recent sharp increase in all 3 main dimensions of big data: volume, velocity and variety.
