How To Access Data

Project Proposal (Restrained)

  1. Go to the ESA User Services Portal
  2. Register or log in to EO Sign In
  3. After logging in, complete and submit the form with your proposed use of the data
  4. The proposal will be evaluated by ESA, which normally takes between 4 and 6 weeks
  5. Upon successful evaluation, you will receive a confirmation email, which describes the amount of data to be provided, and details of how to order the data.

The collection is open for research and application development, prototype and test projects to users located in the territory of ESA Member States (including Canada) and in the European Commission Member States.

Data are available to order on demand upon submission of a Project Proposal subject to evaluation and acceptance by ESA.

ESA will support as many high-quality and innovative projects as possible within the quota limit available, therefore only a limited amount of products can be allowed to each project. For data acquired over Neustrelitz footprint, browse the EOWEB GeoPortal catalogue to search archived products; worldwide data (outside of the Neustrelitz footprint) are not listed in the catalogue, and the availability of such data can be requested by contacting GAF user support.

Availability and restrictions to the use of the data are described in the Terms of Applicability document.

If you need help with the proposal form, consult this guide on how to access data requiring a project proposal.

For further information about the EO Sign In Service you can visit TellUs.

Should you need support to prepare your proposal or access the data, please contact EOHelp.

  • Whether system corrected or radiometrically corrected products are available depends on sensor and processing centre
  • For PAN and LISS-III ortho corrected: If unavailable, user has to supply ground control information and DEM in suitable quality
  • For WiFS ortho corrected: service based on in house available ground control information and DEM.
