ESA is making land data maps of Europe and Africa available to the public online. The maps target land activities that are of particular interest to the agriculture and food-security user communities.
The Culture-MERIS service demonstration – based on data from Envisat’s Medium Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MERIS) – is updated every Wednesday with data acquired Monday to Sunday of the previous week.
Users are able to download maps for selected countries or regions at no cost here: ftp://ionia2.esrin.esa.int (User and Password are both ‘culturemeris’).
For further information, please refer to the Culture-MERIS documentation or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
