The SRTM X-SAR Elevation Mosaic is an aggregation of DLR's SRTM X-SAR DTED tiles. The SRTM X-SAR Color-Coded Elevation Mosaic combines the SRTM X-SAR Elevation and Hillshade Mosaic Datasets to produce a hypsometric colored and shaded relief of the SRTM X-SAR DTED tiles.
MODIS (or Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) is a key instrument aboard the Terra (EOS AM) and Aqua (EOS PM) satellites. Terra's orbit around the Earth is timed so that it passes from north to south across the equator in the morning, while Aqua passes south to north over the equator in the afternoon. Terra MODIS and Aqua MODIS are viewing the entire Earth's surface every 1 to 2 days, acquiring data in 36 spectral bands, or groups of wavelengths (see MODIS Technical Specifications). These data will improve our understanding of global dynamics and processes occurring on the land, in the oceans, and in the lower atmosphere. MODIS is playing a vital role in the development of validated, global, interactive Earth system models able to predict global change accurately enough to assist policy makers in making sound decisions concerning the protection of our environment (from http://modis.gsfc.nasa.gov/). On January 16, 2001 the antenna was installed on the roof of the DLR German Remote Sensing Data Center building in Oberpfaffenhofen and put into operation for MODIS reception (see http://www.dlr.de/eoc/en/desktopdefault.aspx/tabid-7251/12237_read-29022/ for more details). This mosaic has been generated from TERRA and AQUA products between 30 Sept. to 03 Oct. 2011
The RapidEye RESA Germany Mosaic provides a nearly cloud-free view of the country’s geography, natural resources, and infrastructure. It is composed of 374,240 sqkm of multi-spectral RapidEye imagery, acquired between April and October 2015. The product is being provided in the framework of the RapidEye Science Archive (RESA) agreement. Co-funded by the German Federal Government, the fleet of RapidEye satellites were launched from the Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan in 2008. The satellites are now owned by Planet Labs, Inc. The RapidEye Earth observation system comprises five satellites equipped with high-resolution optical sensors. With a spatial resolution of 6.5 m the 5-band instruments operate in the visible and near-infrared portions of the electromagnetic spectrum. With its high repetition rate the RapidEye constellation can image each point on the Earth’s at least once per day.
The Soil Composite Mapping Processor (SCMaP) is a new approach designed to make use of per-pixel compositing to overcome the issue of limited soil exposure due to vegetation. Three primary product levels are generated that will allow for a long term assessment and distribution of soils that include the distribution of exposed soils, a statistical information related to soil use and intensity and the generation of exposed soil reflectance image composites. The resulting composite maps provide useful value-added information on soils with the exposed soil reflectance composites showing high spatial coverage that correlate well with existing soil maps and the underlying geological structural regions.
This collection contains atmospherically corrected Sentinel-2 L2A data processed by means of the DLR-PACO software. Furthermore, cloud, cloud-shadow, snow and water masks are provided which have been calculated by means of the FMask algorithm. All Sentinel-2 MSI bands are provided in 10m spatial resolution. The data encompass all Sentinel-2 granules located over Germany which were acquired from 01/2019 onwards. This is a product of the AGRO-DE project (https://agro-de.info/).

This collection contains Sentinel-2 Level 2B vegetation indices (VI) for all of Germany for all acquired scenes since 01/2019. VIs (EVI, HA56, NDRE, NDVI, NDWI, PSRI and REIP) are calculated from Level 2A data in 10m spatial resolution. Products are available in tiles according to the ESA Sentinel-2 granule grid (UTM). This is a product of the AGRO-DE project (https://agro-de.info/).

The SRTM X-SAR Error Mosaic is based on the height error map (HEM, see SRTM PDF http://www.dlr.de/eoc/Portaldata/60/Resources/dokumente/7_sat_miss/SRTM-XSAR-DEM-DTED-1.1.pdf) and provides a local measure of the achieved accuracy. It is statistically determined from a neighborhood of image cells mainly considering the phase and baseline stability. Thus it describes the precision relative to the surrounding. The determination of the absolute accuracy requires the consideration of reference measures.
The SRTM X-SAR Hillshade Mosaic is a greyscale shaded relief based on the SRTM X-SAR Elevation Mosaic. Combined with the latter, it can be used to add a 3d effect and enhance the visual resolution by pronouncing peaks and valleys.
