NEODAAS is a unique service providing Earth observation data to support and inform a wide range of scientific sectors, including water quality, meteorology, habitat monitoring, volcano research and monitoring, aquaculture, transport, and recreation.

We receive, archive, process and map global data from multiple polar-orbiting satellites in near-real time allowing the support of regional and global studies. We also receive and process data from a number of geostationary satellites. The service is hosted at the Remote Sensing Group at Plymouth Marine Laboratory, managed by the National Centre for Earth Observation and funded by NERC to support UK research scientists with remote sensing data and information.
