Excellent for research purposes and saves time on pre-processing Enables integration of data with other datasets e.g. Ordnance Survey supplied by EDINA Widens the use base of satellite dataAddresses the growing demand (after the release of Google Earth) to use satellite data due to higher awareness of this resource in less traditional disciplines. Only UK national body that acquires satellite data for the UK in a systematic and consistent way, providing an archive of imagery for the nation.
Landsat 5 (late 80s early 90s) Landsat 7 (1999 -2000) SPOT (mid 1990s) Mediterranean datasets available for Landsat imagery only ASAR (2004 – present) ERS 1 & 2 (1995 – 1999) Landmap DEM derived from ERS
UK very difficult to acquire data New Zealand is the download link other side of the world precluding acquisitions!
Limit of 20% download /User OGC WMS service to Edina OS map data users to be investigated! Enhance interoperability and integration of this high quality layered data
Variable Time Series from 1999 to 2007 Some areas covered once others over five times Resolution from 5cm to 25 cm Applications Tree Preservation, Regeneration, Mineral and Waste Planning. British National Grid
