CEOS Development Environment

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.

Best Practices & Guidelines

Best Practices and Guidelines developed throughout CEOS.

CEOS Analysis Ready Data for Land (CARD4L)

CEOS CARD4Lproducts are optical and radar data processed and organized to minimum specifications for immediate analysis without additional user effort. They are suitable for a wide range of users and support time series analyses and data interoperability.

CEOS Future Data Architectures Inventory

The Future Data Architectures (FDA) Inventory tracks Earth observation (EO) data providers and provides information such as services provided, EO ecosystem layers, and data usage and license details,

Calibration/Validation (Cal/Val) Portal

The 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 sensor measurement accuracy and increase inter-operability between Earth observation platforms.

CEOS Open Source Software Inventory (OSSI)

The CEOS OSSI tracks software projects relating to our mission of facilitating the use and exchange of Earth observation data. It contains a number of software packages that relate to the acquisition, processing, analysis, exchange, etc. of Earth observation data.
