Our project utilizes NASA's Mars Photos API to request images and its corresponding metadata available from the various rovers on Mars. The image is then processed using Microsoft Azure Cognitive Services Computer Vision, creating identifying tags for the image. The tags are then combined with the image metadata to create the data to be added to a custom database server. Finally, a web application is then used to aggregate and query indexed data. Upon searching for a specific tag, an image and all of its retrieved metadata is displayed. The user has the ability to view all other images that are also related to it by the searched tag.
The web application home screen, where users can enter specific tags or identifiers to sort through images processed and stored in the database.
After a search the user can view
related images based on tag created by Azure computer vision processing.
In addition to being able to view other pertinent information provided
by the rover API.
