“The GEO portal provides an entry point to access Earth Observation information and services. It connects to a system of existing portals, addressing the GEO Societal Benefit Areas globally while also providing national and regional information to enhance understanding.
The GEO portal is a gateway to global Earth Observation data, information and services developed by the European Space Agency (ESA) in collaboration with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) as contribution to Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS).
The GEO portal was developed in response to a set of requirements from the Group on Earth Observation (GEO) Secretariat aiming at the implementation of a GEO Web Portal serving the GEOSS User Community.”
- Geohazard Supersites and Natural Laboratories
The Supersites have data for the study of natural hazards in geologically active regions, including information from Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), GPS crustal deformation measurements, and earthquakes. The data are provided in the spirit of GEO, ESA, NASA and the National Science Foundation (NSF), that easy access to Earth science data will promote their use and advance scientific research, ultimately leading to reduced loss of life from natural hazards.”
“Virtual Archives are online archives that provide an easy access to EO data by coupling high bandwidth, large storage space and software. The Virtual Archive 4 provides a Cloud based service for storing and providing access to ESA Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data.”
