 Objectives

Using the GlobToolbox, many features of the BEAM toolbox, such as layer management,  colour manipulation, Level 3 binning, and many more can be applied to the global data products.

Additionally, the GlobToolbox provides the methods for creating, editing, importing/exporting,
analysing, and visualising time series which may consist of a number of daily or monthly averaged data products, within user-specified time bounds.

The project aimed at developing a plug-in to the BEAM Toolbox enabling the user to compare many different Earth observation products from a variety of sensors with the products of the DUE Glob series of projects  and exploit them in a common software environment
