The Copernicus Data and Exploitation Platform – Deutschland (CODE-DE) is the German entry point to the EU Copernicus Sentinel Satellite Systems, their data products and the products of the Copernicus Services. Next to that CODE-DE will offer for specific users processing facilities on the platform.

The Sentinel-Satellites form the core of the European Earth Observation Program Copernicus.

CODE-DE is particularly dedicated to grant German entities - administrative bodies and civil services, research organizations or private companies, or even members of the public fast, secure and easy to use access to data of all operational Sentinel satellites as well as all derived information generated by the Copernicus services.

A continuously updated data catalogue allows access to Sentinel-Data filtered by time, location and additional meta-data information such as cloud coverage. All data can be downloaded from Online-server-platforms. Currently up to date data from Sentinel 1a and b, Sentinel 2a are available online.

In the future (starting mid 2017) the service platform will feature the possibility to process data online. Selected user groups will be able to use the online processing power von CODE-DE to generate tailored information products even without own computing infrastructure. Both the use of pre-installed Earth observation tool boxes provided by CODE-DE as well as the deployment of customer developed external processors will be supported.
