About DATOS


The Remote Sensing and Data Science (DATOS) Help Desk aims to produce and communicate relevant disaster information to agencies and key end-users to complement the current efforts of existing government agencies and initiatives. DATOS builds on and integrates past and ongoing DOST-supported projects; and different Geographic Information System (GIS), Remote Sensing (RS) and other Data Science techniques.

The DATOS logo represents the project's main fields of study. The interconnected dots represent data points, as DATOS makes use of data science and its underlying technologies. One of the DOST-ASTI projects that DATOS heavily relies on is the CoARE project, which provides support for its data science needs, such as data archiving and machine learning. The satellite dish in the project name represents remote sensing, which is incidentally one of the data acquisition methods used by the project. Another DOST-ASTI project, PEDRO, is one of the primary sources of satellite images that are processed by the DATOS Project.
