  • This collection contains TerraSAR-X Level 1b data acquired over the pre-defined Geohazard Supersites and a number of CEOS projects regions. The collection comprises mainly complex (SSC) with a number of detected (MGD) products. TerraSAR-X data can be ordered by a Principal Investigator (PI) of a respective Supersite region under the terms of a TerraSAR-X Science proposal accepted by DLR. Data is available for download by the Geohazard scientific community under the terms of the user license. Supersites are single sites or extended areas of high priority to the Geohazards community in which active single or multiple geological hazards pose a threat to human population and/or critical facilities. The Supersites initiative provides access to spaceborne and in-situ geophysical data of selected sites prone to earthquake, volcano or other hazards. For further information see: http://ceos.org/ourwork/workinggroups/disasters/gsnl/ Overview of permament Supersites: http://geo-gsnl.org/supersites/permanent-supersites/

  • As an example of its on-demand remote sensing services and the need for analysis-ready data as expressed by many users, the Federal Agency for Cartography and Geodesy (BKG) designed a high-quality mosaic that covers the area of Germany. The mosaic consists of multiple Sentinel-2 orthorectified images that have been radiometrically colour-balanced to a uniform appearance – annual updates of the mosaic are intended. The product has the following basic characteristics: five-bands (both true color and false color composites), 10m spatial resolution, seamless and cloud-free (less than 3% cloud cover), 8-bit image depth.

  • 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.
