GOCE data ordering via EOLI-SA disabled

28 February 2013

As anticipated in the news regarding the Major GOCE data release of 15 February 2013, all the GOCE Level-1 and Level-2 products up to November 2012 have now been made available through the GOCE Virtual On-line Archive (VOA). In order to simplify the data access, it has been decided to discontinue the use of the ESA EOLI-SA catalogue and ordering tool for GOCE data access.
