Viewing a spatially aggregated time series


National and regional governments often compare current values of vegetation and rainfall indicators to longer-term statistics. To this end, the Proba-V MEP's Time Series Viewer application visualizes a few basic statistics (min/max/average) that are pre-computed and aggregated at the level of countries and one administrative level smaller (i.e. determined by UN-FAO's Global Administrative Unit Layer – GAUL).

Moreover, local users such as the farmers, are likely to be interested in comparing the vegetation conditions or productivity for their small areas, both with the multi-year time series and nation-wide or regional averages. For this, the Time Series Viewer offers the capability of computing, on-the-fly using Big Data techniques (Hadoop), the current values and long-term statistics for custom selected areas (polygons or points).

This image illustrates a snapshot of the NDVI statistics, acquired by Proba-V MEP for the specific regions of France on 11 Oct 2017.

GOSAT data distribution temporary interruption

22 May 2018

Due to unexpected issues, the GOSAT mission data distribution has temporarily been interrupted by JAXA for both the TANSO-FTS and TANSO-CAI products, starting from:
  • TANSO-FTS:17 May 2018 18:00:15 UTC 
  • TANSO-CAI: 17 May 2018 17:12:54 UTC.   
The cause of the problem is currently under investigation by the JAXA GOSAT Team and will be fixed as soon as possible.

ESA distributes GOSAT data within its Third Party Missions programme.

Swarm celebrates its 4th anniversary in space

22 November 2017

Download the video in: HD or 720p


Exactly four years ago a Rockot launch vehicle carrying the three precious Swarm satellites blasted off from the launch site in Plesetsk. Since then our mission has been continuously collecting ground-breaking data on the various components of the magnetic field and on the near-Earth environment and their dynamics.

In celebration of the first four successful years of exploitation, we have prepared a short movie for all friends of Swarm to enjoy. It also comes with a dedicated birthday cake. We are looking forward to many more years of excellent Swarm data and exciting science results.
