In emergency services, rapid response is paramount. ICube-SERTIT’s Rapid Mapping Service provides near real-time delivery of geo-information to help emergency services respond quickly to disasters such as flooding, fires and landslides. A new Python open-source library, called EOReader, speeds up this mapping response by enabling the easy opening of imagery from multiple satellite sensors, both optical and synthetic aperture radar (SAR).
Temperatures in the Arctic are rising at an unprecedented rate. This workshop looked at the needs and challenges of working and living in the rapidly changing Arctic and explore how space-based services might help to meet those needs.
The purpose of this document is to present the major theoretical guidelines for a standard SAR (aka Delay Doppler) Processing from low-level data (FBR, aka L1a) to multi-looked waveforms (L1b) in case of the Closed-Burst instrument transmission mode (CryoSat-2 and Sentinel-3 case).
The Copernicus programme is based on a fleet of European Earth observation satellites, built and operated by ESA, member states and commercial entities. Copernicus will also offer data from non-European satellites.
ESA's Earth Observation Science for Society programme aims to promote scientific exploitation of satellite data, forges new scientific discoveries and pioneers new services, stimulating downstream industrial and economic growth.
The main objective of Sen3Exp (Sentinel-3 Experimental Campaign) was to provide a comprehensive dataset that covers all Sentinel-3 OLCI and SLSTR bands that is to be used for the algorithm prototype and ground segment processor development.
