Data & Tools


Earth Observation (EO) Handbook & Database

The EO Handbook presents satellite EO capabilities and applications.

The Online Database details present and future satellites, instruments, and measurement capabilities.

International Directory Network (IDN)

The CEOS IDN is an international effort developed to assist researchers in locating information on available Earth science datasets and services.

CEOS Visualization Environment (COVE)

COVE is a browser-based suite of tools for searching, analyzing and visualizing actual and potential satellite sensor coverage.

Data Policy Portal

The CEOS Data Policy Portal captures the data access policies of all CEOS satellites and instruments in an effort to promote improved data access and data sharing principles.

Essential Climate Variable (ECV) Inventory

An inventory of CEOS Agency climate-monitoring datasets that address the ECVs associated with climate variation and change as well as the impact of climate change on Earth.


Other Tools and Data Services

Atmospheric Composition Constellation (ACC) PortalThe ACC Portal provides interoperable access, tools, and contextual guidance to scientists and value-adding organisations in using remotely sensed atmospheric composition data. The initial focus is on Essential Climate Variables (ECV) identified by the Global Climate Observing System (GCOS).Launch
Calibration/Validation (Cal/Val) PortalThe CEOS Cal/ValPortal provides support to worldwide activities on calibration and validation and specifically ensures the standardisation of sensor inter-calibration. The overall goal is to increase the measurement accuracy of all the sensors supported by this system and increase the inter-operability between Earth observation platforms.Launch
Climate Diagnostics DirectoryThe Climate Diagnostics Directory enables full-text and topic-based searches for data records pertaining to Essential Climate Variables (ECVs) and Societal Benefit Areas (SBAs).Launch
CEOS Water PortalThe CEOS Water Portal provides assistance to water-relevant scientists and non-researchers alike in the development of water data services associated with data integration and distribution.Launch
