“With the Telerik tools, we can repackage the
data and improve navigation so information
can be shared with an audience that couldn’t
appreciate the data before. Telerik helped us
open up the Notebook and the Mars Data to
more users around the world. "
Tom Stein, Senior Computer System Manager,
NASA’s Planetary Data System at Washington University
NASA’s Curiosity rover has been exploring Mars for years, collecting a giant archive of raw data in the process. To make this data more approachable and usable for scientists, NASA turned to Progress Telerik to make a more intuitive web application.
NASA has a massive archive of data collected from the Curiosity’s daily missions, but even for experienced scientists, identifying key results and searching through the information was a challenge.
Progress Telerik provided NASA's Planetary Data System team with all the tools required to improve the application's front end, enabling the space agency to open the data to new audiences.
The PDS team has significantly improved productivity with Progress Telerik, which means developers can spend more time on the user experience and incoming user requests.
