This section will guide you through searching for various geospatial data using the Catalog. On the left sidebar, two labels are displayed next to the images: Purchase and Processing.
The Purchase label (in green) returns only scenes available for purchasing and downloading via Storage. These images originate from all types of storage: long-term archive and online archive. The available data sources that can be purchased are displayed in the table below.
The Processing label (in blue) returns images that can be used for downloading or further combined with a processing algorithm in workflows. These images originate from the online archive. The available data sources are displayed in the table below.
For Pléiades and SPOT 6/7 data sources, more images have the label Purchase than Processing, since this category includes images from the long-term archive (LTA).
The differences between the long-term archive and online archive are described in the table below.
|Archive type||Description||Incidence angle||Processing level||Cloud cover|
|Long-term archive||complete Pléiades and SPOT 6/7 image collection||all||Reflectance||0-100%|
|Online archive (Living Library)||a selection of Pléiades and SPOT 6/7 images acquired less than 2 years ago||< 30°||Reflectance||< 15% (Pléiades) < 25% (SPOT 6/7)|
To access the catalog, please follow the steps below.
