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.

  • LISS-IV: Mono-Chromatic, the band is selectable. In practice the red is used.
  • For LISS-IV MN and LISS-III ortho corrected: If unavailable, user has to supply ground control information and DEM in suitable quality.
  • For AWiFS ortho corrected: service based on in house available ground control information and DEM.

The products are available as part of the GAF Imagery products from the Indian missions: IRS-1C, IRS-1D, CartoSat-1 (IRS-P5), ResourceSat-1 (IRS-P6) and ResourceSat-2 (IRS-R2) missions.

'ResourceSat-1 archive' collection has worldwide coverage: for data acquired over Neustrelitz footprint, the users can browse the EOWEB GeoPortal catalogue to search archived products; worldwide data (out the Neustrelitz footprint) can be requested by contacting GAF user support to check the readiness since no catalogue is not available.

All details about the data provision, data access conditions and quota assignment procedure are described in the Terms of Applicability.
