Tackling Climate Change with Big Data

EMC recently announced the Big Data vs. Climate Change, a new project in conjunction with the White House Climate Data Initiative. The goal of the project is to take publically available nature and climate data and present them in a relevant and digestible form.

In the spirit of this challenge, this November, a group of EMC and Pivotal data scientists and platform architects teamed up with members of the Earthwatch Institute and the Schoodic Institute to travel to Acadia National Park in Maine to study bird migration.  The goal was to collect data that can illuminate and illustrate the impact of climate change on the environment.
