IBM's Physical Analytics Integrated Data Repository and Services (PAIRS) is a geospatial Big Data service. PAIRS not only contains a massive amount of curated geospatial (or more precisely spatio-temporal) data from a large number of public and private data resources of satellite imagery, weather data, soil properties, and agricultural surveys etc., but also supports user contributed data layers. PAIRS offers an easy-to-use platform for both rapid assembly and retrieval of geospatial datasets or performing complex analytics, lowering time-to-discovery significantly by reducing the data curation and management burden. In this talk, we review recent progress with PAIRS and showcase its application agriculture through a few exemplary analytics.
