    Delayed update of data due to maintenance work at ESA servers

    Due to maintenance work on ESA data servers (ESA Col-hub) on Monday, 4th Dec. 2017 and Tuesday, 5th Dec. 2017, you may experience a temporary delay in data provision or temporarily missing most recent data. Please, take this into account for your work.

    The missing data will be ingested as soon as possible as ESA servers are available again. This may take some time (~1 - 2 days).

    Further information from ESA is available here:

    Many thanks for understanding.

    CODE-DE Version 2.0: Now providing processing environment and improving usability and visualisation

    In the last eight months, the German Copernicus data portal CODE-DE has been used by more than 650 users as access to the Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2 products. A total of 47,000 products of data were downloaded via the online server platforms during this time. The constantly updated catalog already includes a data volume of 800 TB.

    CODE-DE Version 2.0 now also provides a processing environment. Users can process the data themselves using different methods and download the generated higher-value products. The processing environment allows the individual selection of algorithms as well as the temporal and spatial search of the remote sensing data to which the methods are applied. The respective status of the processing is also visible. The currently available methods are in particular an extract of the Sentinel toolboxes such as Sen2Cor for the atmospheric correction of Sentinel-2 products. Here's how to use this service. There were also necessary adjustments in the authentication of users. Here you will find more information. CODE-DE Version 2.0 also includes an enhancement to the appearance of the Sentinel-2 data catalog. These are now displayed in the full resolution of 10m.

    In the coming months, additional algorithms and data products such as Sentinel-3 and Sentinel-5P will be available. In addition, the processing environment is expanded in terms of its capacities by selected applications.
