Catalog Search

Search your area of interest for available data from our providers.


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.

Data source
SPOT 6/7

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.

Data source
SPOT 6/7

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).
