Abstract
The first Brazilian satellite, one out of the family of three data collection satellites -- SCD, has been successfully operating as an automatic collector of environmental data acquired by a set of data collection platforms (PCD) distributed in the Brazilian territory. The data have been used by the scientific community for several applications and studies such as tropical forest regeneration, ozone layer, greenhouse effect, drifting buoys and so on. This paper addresses the software system developed for the Data Collection Mission Center, on tasks of storing, processing and distributing environmental data transmitted by SCD1. The analysis and development of this software were oriented to fulfill the needs of both the Mission Center operators and the users of the environmental data. Techniques for designing user interface centered on user needs were applied.
