The Drift+Noise "Ice Pad" was a superb and very effective way of us downloading and displaying a variety of remote sensing satellite images, and was being used every day on the bridge of the S.A. Agulhas II to help us navigate through the dense and thick muli-year sea ice found in the western Weddell Sea.
The ability to acquire subset, georeferenced preview and scan Sentinel-1 imagery was essential for our day-to-day navigation on the Weddell Sea Expedition 2019, without the need for downloading full-resolution imagery through the usual sources — therefore, the IcePad service was ideal for our needs.
The intuitive GUI and data searching functionality was easy to learn and was useable by all parties integrating this data into their workflows, from scientists to members of the ship’s crew who may or may not have had any prior experience with geospatial data/GIS packages.
