Data service providing the latest processed satellite images of earth to inform research, monitoring and development.

We offer a unique service providing earth observation data that can support and inform a wide range of scientific and commercial sectors, including water quality, habitat monitoring, volcano research and monitoring, farming, aquaculture, transport, and recreation.

We have the capability to automatically receive, archive, process and map global data from multiple polar-orbiting satelites in near-real time allowing the support of global studies and sectors. We also receive and process data from multiple geostationary satellites.

This service is hosted at two sites; data processing and analysis is provided by the Remote Sensing Group at Plymouth Marine Laboratory and data reception and archiving is provided by the Dundee Satellite Receiving Station at the University of Dundee. For further information see our downloads.

The Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) Earth Observation Data Acquisition and Analysis Service (NEODAAS) is managed by the National Centre for Earth Observation and funded by NERC to support UK research scientists with remote sensing data and information.
