A new log in and registration process has been introduced with EO-DISP for Principal Investigators. All PI activities in Earth Online require you to be logged in to a valid Earth Observation Single Sign-On (EO-SSO) account, as most PIs already do. If you don't have an account, however, see here: How to register a EO-SSO account
If you were already registered with the EOPI, your legacy data – projects, submissions, reports etc. - is still in the system. This document describes how to:
1. Login and Access myEarthOnline
All PI activities in the system require you to be logged in to a valid Earth Observation Single Sign-On (EO-SSO) account. If you don’t have an account, see: How to register a SSO account. All your PI data and information can be found in the myEarthnet part of the site.
To log on and access myEarthnet:
Step 1: Click "Login My EarthOnline" at the top of the page
Step 2: Login with EO-SSO Credentials
Enter your EO-SSO username and password and then click "Login"
You are now logged on to the system, and can access your personal area, MyEarthnet.
Step 3: Click "My EarthOnline" button at the top of the page
You are now in your personal area, and will be presented with your projects, your personal registration information, and the free, online data sets you have registered for:
The entry page always displays the 'My Projects' portlet. It displays all projects (submissions), for which you are registered as PI or administrator.
For evaluators, the 'My Evaluations' portlet is displayed. It lists all pending evaluations. Old (inactive) evaluations are not listed and not accessible to the evaluator anymore.
For those users with registration or one or more proposal submissions, the 'My Online Data' portlet displays all subscribed free dataset products.
Step 4: Verify your personal data is correct
The first time you access MyEarthOnline with your EO-SSO account, you should check your data:
Check that your personal registration information (under the 'My Online Data' header) is complete and correct. If it is not, click the Modify button to amend the details.
Check that your legacy projects are all listed under MyProjects.
Step 5: Click the "Logout" button at the top of the page
Once you are finished with your session, you may logout of My Earthnet, simply by clicking the "Logout" button at the top of the page.
2. Perform Fast Registration to get free and open online data
Step 1: Click on the "Get Data" option for the product you require
The ESA data policy foresees two main categories of data: Datasets that are open, free, and available online, and restricted datasets.
For the first category of data it is enough to perform a minimum, fast registration in the system. The fast registration is performed by completing the few fields in the 'My Online Data' portlet.
These are the steps to obtain online data from the free and open sets:
Step 1. Select the ESA or TPM datasets by clicking the 'Add ESA Product' or 'Add TPM Product' buttons.
Filter your search by satellite and instrument to obtain a list of available products and you may repeat this step until you have selected all the sets you require.
Step 2: Tick the Terms and Conditions checkbox at the bottom of the page, and then submit.
For most datasets you will receive the information to access the data in an email immediately. In addition, the access information will be contained in the My Online Data list, as shown below. User name and password can be visualized by mouse-over - in the example below, the access information for a CryoSat data set is displayed by placing the cursor over the 'Click Here for Download' link.
Note: Some online datasets require personal access to third party systems. In this case you will receive an email from the ESA order desk with this information within a few days.
Note:Some of the hyperlinks point to ftp servers. It is preferred to access these from the command lines.
Note that you can also get the online data through the product descriptions. To do this:
Step 1: Navigate to the required dataset through the Data Products area
Step 2: Click on the "Get Data" option for the product you require
3. Submit a project proposal to obtain restricted data
If you want to gain access to restricted datasets, you must submit a project proposal. Here's how:
Step 1. Click the New Project button
Then follow the instructions for the proposal as listed on the page, demonstrated in the below image:
4. How to Map your Existing Projects
If all of your legacy projects are not visible in the My Projects portlet, you may map them yourself. Here's how:
Step 1: Click on the 'Map Other Projects' button in the 'My Projects' portlet
Step 2: Log in with your old EOPI account user name and password
Step 3: Follow instructions to map your legacy projects to your new account
