ESA’s Third Party Missions programme consists of almost 50 satellite missions, which are owned by organisations around the world. ESA has agreements with these organisations to acquire, process, and distribute data from their missions
The ERS programme celebrated its 30th anniversary on 17 July. Today, we are still exploiting ERS data and experts continue to work on improving the altimeter, radiometer and SAR data the programme acquired.
This document is intended for geologists who are interested in broadening their knowledge of interpretation of imaging radar data. It introduces imaging radar as it may be used by technicians and image interpreters. Interferometric SAR is briefly treated, with some basic and practical hints. An illustrated application study on land subsidence is included.
This document specifies the interface through which files of data related to the Global Activity Plan (GAP), stored in the ESRIN ERS Central Facility (EECF), are transmitted to the external entities. The EECF systems involved in this data exchange are the Interface Subset (ISS), responsible for telecommunication aspects and preprocessing, and the Central User Service (CUS), where the GAP resides.
The Forestry Thematic Exploitation Platform (Forestry TEP) enables users in the forestry sector to access satellite data based processing services and tools for generating value-added forest information products.
