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.

For applications requiring near real time access to crisis and archive data, ESA has identified an additional new innovative data supply mechanism fully based on systematic data. The GPOD FAIRE system has been developed as a response to this objective and is at present under evaluation and reserved to crisis/damage mapping experts (such as crisis mapping value adding organisations, principal investigators, validation expert) to help better access data in emergency/response situations providing an additional service for data access.




The primary output of the service is a co registered time series of selected radar images, optionally ortho-rectified beforehand using SRTM data.
In addition an historical reference backscatter image (average of all the pre-crisis images) and a difference image (between the average and the post crisis image, also co-registered) are provided. When requested, the output data are provided in geo-coded form along the plate-carrée or the UTM projection. Output are provided in geotif format
On request additional data may be retrieved over the area of interest:

  • Terrain features: height, aspect and slope computed from SRTM DEM
  • RGB optical mosaic derived from Landsat imagery
These data may be useful in particular to support the analysis of the ASAR/SAR imagery in deriving flood mapping.

For support, questions, comments, requirements concerning FAIRE,
please contact the GPOD Support Team.
