Welcome to services page of European Space Agency (ESA) Grid Processing on Demand (G-POD) for Earth Observation Applications.
The ESA G-POD is a generic GRID-based operational environment where specific data handling applications can be seamlessly plugged into system. Coupled with high-performance and sizeable computing resources managed by GRID technologies, it provides the necessary flexibility for building an application virtual environment with quick accessibility to data, computing resources and results.
The G-POD web portal is a flexible, secure, generic and distributed plat-form where the user can easily manage all its tasks. From the creation of a new task to the result publication, passing by the data selection and the job monitoring, the user goes trough a friendly and intuitive interface accessible from everywhere.
G-POD 2.0 is online
2011-02-15 G-POD 2.0 is online with its new feature.
Fast Access to Imagery for Rapid mapping Exploitation
2009-10-14 Access to ENVISAT and ERS data in the context of an emergency/response application is performed via the delivery of ESA standard images provided either on request or systematically. In particular, ESA User Services manage specific data supply procedures defined for emergency-responses applications such as the International Charter Space and Major Disasters
G-POD monitoring an Ice Shelf in danger
2008-12-12 In light of recent developments that threaten to lead to the break-up of the Wilkins Ice Shelf, ESA G-Pod is making daily satellite images of the ice shelf available to the public via the 'Webcam' from Space web page in order to monitor the developments as they occur.
G-POD contribution for Sentinel-3 engineering
2007-09-06 A study on the ocean surface wind speed/cloud coverage correlation for the sun-glint issue on Sentinel-3 based on MERIS Level 2 full mission products processing has permitted to refine the specifications for the next generation of earth observation optical instrument MERIS on Sentinel-3.
