On-demand image processing made easy

Earth observation missions produce huge quantities of data. But getting the right information at the right time is still often a challenge. Try the N-daily compositor service of the PROBA-V Mission Exploitation Platform (MEP) and see how you can receive just the information of the area of your interest for a specific time frame automatically.

PROBA-V MEP, a toolbox of processing services 

The PROBA-V Mission Exploitation Platform (MEP) offers several on-demand processing workflows to create and deliver customised products. We’ve already introduced you to The Notebooks app in one of our previous blogs, so let me now show you the N-daily compositor

Due to cloud cover, many places cannot be imaged every time a satellite passes over. A composite uses a sequence of images, and selects the best pixel from this series to generate a cloud free image. The N-daily compositor service lets you select the number of days to use for an area of your interest automatically, e.g. you can receive a 7-daily composite of PROBA-V data of Europe every Monday morning: get exactly what you need when you need it. 

The service accesses the full PROBA-V data archive (1 km, 300 m and 100 m) and can be used via the Web client or via RESTful Web services for seamless integration into your application. You can even view the results at full-resolution before downloading via the online Geoviewer. Check out the online manual for more information.

Request a virtual machine

On-demand processing is only one aspect of the PROBA-V MEP. If you want to dig deeper, you might also be interested in using our Virtual Research Environment

A user Virtual Machine (VM) offers you:
  • Access to the complete PROBA-V data archive, as well as SPOT-VEGETATION and Vegetation parameters from the Copernicus Global Land Service.
  • A powerful and expandible set of tools and libraries (e.g. SNAP toolbox, GRASS GIS, QGIS)
  • The possibility to develop and debug test applications (R, Python or Java)
So, you can start working with the data or develop and execute applications on the data, without having to download the data.
