Imaging the environment is an essential method in spatial science when studying the Earth or any other planet.
Here research data in various scales are available, that means from microscopy to remote sensing, which provides rich information for the different scientific disciplines.
If we like to describe all the spatial research data commonly on the highest level, a core set of five elements are essential in order to describe location, time and space (i.e. x, y, z, time, spatial reference).
These core set could perfectly serves as linkage for inner-, inter- and transdisciplinary research.
In order to exploit the synergies between terrestrial and planetary and science, FAIR Digital Objects seems to be a promising approach to fuse both, the image metadata as well as the content metadata with the imagery itself.
Within the presentation we present the current status and the next steps of the project.
