BigSkyEarth, a project funded by the EU COST program, is a joint effort to design and develop innovative Big Data tools for astronomy and earth-science remote sensing applications.  With the current emergence of Terabyte(TB)-scale astronomical and Earth observation systems, the traditional approach to basic functions such as data searching, analytics or visualization are becoming increasingly difficult to handle. Both disciplines have peculiar data, typical data processing and analysis chains, and specific models to be fed with data. However, both disciplines lack the capabilities for easily accessible semantics-oriented browsing (usage of higher level descriptive expressions) in large data archives.  Challenges include: Digital curation and data access; new frontiers in visualisation; adaptation to new high performance computing technologies; and new generation of scientists in the age of interdisciplinarity.
