Earth observation, ground sensing, and other data collection techniques have exponentially accelerated our ability to collect a large amount of data. Recent research has produced computing intensive algorithms and models for analyzing data and simulating scientific phenomena. Geoinformation science requires ongoing research and development to leverage different computing platforms to address these data and computing intensive problems. This chapter discusses how to utilize distributed computing, high performance computing (HPC), grid computing, and cloud computing to address the requirement.
