Hosted by the Civil Protection of the Autonomous Province of Bozen/Bolzano, the receiving station of the Institute for Earth Observation supplies near-real-time (NRT) Earth Observation satellite data for use in a wide variety of remote sensing applications. The station, financed by the Province of Bozen/Bolzano, supports the acquisition of optical and radar data.
Since March 2009, NASA missions Aqua and Terra have been transmitting images of Europe to the EURAC Ground Segment, and since February 2012, the NASA mission Suomi-NPP has been added to the daily mission scheduler. A sophisticated data processing and storage infrastructure with a state-of-the-art redundancy system assures fast, reliable access to NRT and archived data. Our aim is to provide our users with high-quality remotely-sensed images at all levels of the processing chain.
We have a portfolio of EO products, ranging from simple satellite images to more complex remote sensing applications such as change detection, land-use and land-cover classification, snow cover maps, project-specific monitoring, and analysis services.
