Proba-V data available over Antarctica

05 March 2018

Near the end of last year, due to a huge amount of interest from the users, it was decided to acquire Proba-V data over Antarctica from November 2017 to February 2018.

The campaign has now been completed: the 1 km, 300 m and 100 m resolution products of Antarctica are available online via the Proba-V Distribution Platform in the respective product collections.

Furthermore, all products are mounted on the Proba-V Mission Exploitation Platform Virtual Machines, providing immediate access to the data with a powerful set of tools and libraries next to processing capacity. Products are processed up to L2A and provided in a polar stereographic projection for your convenience.
