CODE-DE – Sentinel data free of charge for everyone

DLR released the CODE-DE platform which allows easy and free of charge access to Sentinel remote sensing data: CODE-DE makes possible free-of-charge, simple access to data from the Sentinel satellites and to information products from the European Copernicus programme–including an up-to-date cloud-free mosaic of Germany, produced at EOC. The platform will also provide access to national geodata infrastructure (GDI-DE). This portal provides harmonised and standardised German geodata from a wide variety of sources. By agreement with industrial partners it is also planned to offer data from the German radar satellites TerraSAR-X and TanDEM-X as well as high-resolution optical images...

Global Water Dynamics Data

EU-JRC released and published a Global Surface Dynamics data set based on over three million satellite scenes between 1984 and 2015. This global map is available in 30-meter resolution. The maps are available for all users, free of charge. It provides information about water occurence or water seasonality on a global scale since 1984. An interactive globe for browsing the data and its information can be accessed here: the main webpage by EU-JRC about this remote sensing products can be seen here:...

Global Urban Footprint data released by DLR

The Global Urban Footprint by DLR (Thomas Esch) has been released and provides a global coverage of urbanized areas. From the DLR website: Currently, more than half of the world’s population are urban dwellers and this number is still rapidly increasing. Since settlements – and urban areas in particular – represent the centers of human activity, the environmental, economic, political, societal and cultural impacts of urbanization are far-reaching. They include negative aspects like the loss of natural habitats, biodiversity and fertile soils, climate impacts, waste, pollution, crime, social conflicts or transportation and traffic problems, making urbanization to one of...
