WorldCover: worldwide land cover mapping

Discover more about WorldCover, the global land cover products at 10 m resolution for 2020 and 2021 based on Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2 data.

New Sentinel-5P data products coming up this year!

In collaboration with the Belgian Institute for Space Aeronomy (BIRA-IASB) we will expand our offer of Sentinel-5P TROPOMI data products. We will release daily, monthly and yearly averaged data products for methane, formaldehyde, and sulfur dioxide in our Terrascope viewer later this year. Further, we will collaborate with BIRA-IASB and the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI) on an improved nitrogen dioxide product for the European region, which we expect to release in 2023.

Monitoring deformation of bridges using Sentinel-1

In the MOSCI project, IMDC and VITO looked into the feasibility of using InSAR technology to monitor deformation of large structures. This remote sensing technology uses freely available Sentinel-1 data which allows us to monitor e.g. hundreds of bridges at the same time.

What’s coming in 2022?

A new year also means new and improved data and services. Discover which data products, EO services, technical updates and new features you can expect in 2022.

A brand new Marketplace to access and offer EO services

In January 2022 we will launch the Terrascope Marketplace, a brand new platform to access and offer a variety of high-quality EO data and services. The Terrascope marketplace is a valuable and innovative platform to bring end users and service providers together. For end users, it is the place to discover EO services that meet their requirements. For service providers, it is an easy way to offer their technology to the world.

Water quality products now available

Copernicus Sentinel-2 based water quality products for Belgium are now available in Terrascope.

Webinar 2021

Discover the Terrascope webinars

Discover the Terrascope webinars (and webinar recordings) to see how EO data and services are used, in research activities and operational services. Experts from different sectors show how Earth observation data and services give us the possibility to achieve more.

Monitoring volcano ash plumes on La Palma with different satellites

On 19 September 2021, the Cumbre Vieja volcano on La Palma (Canary Islands, Spain) started to erupt for the first time since 1971. Together with the outflowing lava, the crater ejected large ash plumes containing several gases, among which sulfur dioxide (SO2). Discover how three satellite instrument allow us to map and monitor the volcano ash plumes and SO2 transport.
