EO Browser

EO Browser combines a complete archive of Sentinel-2, Sentinel-3, ESA’s archive of Landsat 5, 7 and 8, global coverage of Landsat 8, and Proba-V products in one place. 

EO Browser makes it possible to browse and compare full resolution images from the sources mentioned above. You simply go to your area of interest, select criteria such as time range and cloud coverage, and inspect the resulting data from different sources.

Check the showcase video:

Comparison of Data

Follow 4 simple steps to compare the data:

Step 1: Search for your area of interest.

Step 2: Select criteria such as time range and cloud coverage.

Step 3: Inspect the resulting data from different sources.

Step 4: Pin your favorite results and compare them.

The process in the background takes care of the selection of appropriate scenes, download and processing of data, as well as mosaic creation.

The visual comparison tool makes it possible to observe changes in the land from 1984 onward.

Different Visualisation

The image can be prepared based on user's desired configuration. There are already several visualizations available such as true color, false color, NDVI, EVI, etc. By choosing "Custom" it is even possible to choose any combination of bands as well as some basic math operations between pixel values.

If you need these data in your own platform, you can either export them as GeoTiff or include them using web services.
