Earth Observation data distribution services improvement
14 June 2018
ESA has started a process to improve the Earth Observation data distribution services, aiming at facilitating access to data and information for the end users, initially by shortening the access path and reviewing authentication and authorisation processes.
This improvement will materialise gradually, and the first implementing steps will concern the Earth Explorers GOCE, CryoSat, Swarm and SMOS data access through the setting-up of a simplified procedure leading the users straight to the product repository without affecting the current data retrieval method itself.
