New data and services coming in 2021
A new year, a new list of additional or improved data and services. Also in 2021 we’ll keep improving our data offer, EO viewer and image processing web services. Here’s an overview of what you can expect the upcoming months.
- SENTINEL-5P DATA
Since January 26, 2021 you can access global N02 and CO abundance maps (daily, monthly and yearly averages). Both atmospheric gasses are produced during combustion. CO mainly from burning fossil fuel or biomass, NO2 in industrial processes. When averaged over a month or week, emission sources can be identified. Click here to discover more.
- SENTINEL-3 DATA
Next to Sentinel-1, Sentinel-2 and Sentinel-5P, we will also offer Sentinel-3 data. We will add the Global Synergy (continuation of the SPOT-VEGETATION and PROBA-V time series) and Land Surface Temperature data products. With the SPOT-VEGETATION and Sentinel-3 data we have access to an uninterrupted time series that starts in 1998. This is a major asset to study vegetation evolution and climate change. (expected by mid-2021)
- Copernicus DEM at 30 m resolution
Access to global elevation data. This data is needed for geocorrection of satellite imagery, and is a valuable data source on its own (e.g. in hydrology). (expected by mid-2021)
- Dynamic contrast settings in our EO viewer
Our EO viewer will soon offers an additional feature which allows you to easily adjust the contrast settings for true color and color infrared images. This is interesting for areas that display very bright (e.g. snow covered) or very dark (e.g. water) in our EO viewer. By changing the contrast settings locally, it is possible to see details that were hidden before. (expected in March 2021)
We will also organize a new series of Terrascope roadshows and webinars. During these (virtual ) events you will learn more about our data and web services, but also related projects such as OpenEO or EO4GEO. Subscribe to our newsletter or follow us on social media to stay informed.
