How to Access 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 for on demand ordering upon submission of a Project Proposal subject to evaluation and acceptance by ESA.

The process takes up to two weeks and there are no deadlines for submitting a proposal.

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.

Availability and restrictions to the use of the data are described in the ESA Third Party Missions (TPM) T&C document and in the Terms of Applicability document


ResourceSat-1 (also known as IRS-P6) archive products are available as below:


Sensor Type Resolution (m) Coverage (km x km) System or radiometrically corrected Ortho corrected (DN) Neustralitz archive Global archive
LISS-IV Mono-Chromatic 5 70 x 70 X X 2004 – 2010 2003 - 2013
LISS-III Multi-spectral 20 140 x 140 X X 2004 – 2013 2003 - 2013
AWiFS Multi-spectral 60 370 x 370 X X 2004 – 2013 2003 - 2013


  • 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.
