Introduction

ARLAS Exploration is an Open Source software for exploring and analyzing Geo BigData.

In other terms, it helps you navigate in a big amount of data provided it has a timestamp and it is georeferenced.

Explore your data

Once your data is mapped to ARLAS Exploration, more specifically to ARLAS-server, we offer a web interface that synthetizes it in a map, a timeline and several analytics views such as charts, progression bars, donuts, ... This interface is called ARLAS-wui.

The exploration is ensured by interacting with all these elements. The whole panel updates automatically each time you filter an analytic view and your analysis remains coherent.

For instance, here is how 4 days of boats navigation in the Dannish sea are explored in ARLAS-wui
