New portal for free SPOT Vegetation satellite data

SPOT-Veg-Portal_630

The Flemish Institute for Technological Research (VITO) recently announced that it has launched a new distribution portal for accessing SPOT vegetation data, which offers free access to all vegetation data (P-, global S1 and S10 data) older than three months.

The portal will serve as the distribution site for all earth observation data and processed products, which includes the decadal syntheses of MetOp-AVHRR, Envisat-Meris, and Proba-V products. Also available are near real-time SPOT vegetation products and derived products from Spaceborne earth observation data, such as burnt areas, leaf area index, vegetation cover, and surface albedo.

The portal was developed as part of the PADUA (Product Archiving, Distribution and User oriented Access) program.

After running for fifteen years, the SPOT vegetation mission is now ending, and will be replaced by the Proba-V satellite. All data from the SPOT vegetation will be housed on the VITO website. Registration is required in order to access data products. Pre-exisiting users of SPOT vegetation data will also need to re-register on the new site.

You can learn more about the data available at the FAQ.
