A significant update of the Copernicus Services Data Hub (CopHub) is planned on 13 March 2017 in order to completely align its data offer to the Copernicus Open Access Hub (previously known as the Sentinels Scientific Data Hub).
The Copernicus Services Data Hub has been in operation since 29 January 2016 with a data offer that starts from 01 December 2015 (ingestion date), whereas the Copernicus Open Access Hub has been in operation since 3 October 2014 with the complete data holdings since the operational qualification of the Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2 products.
Following the realignment, CopHub users will be able to find the full data set from Sentinel-1A, published with the same identifier (UUID) and ingestion date as the OpenHub.
This also implies an update of the UUID of all the Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2 products that have been published on CopHub with an ingestion date before 27 July 2016.
Users are reminded that the UUID is considered an internal key of the Data Hub system that should not be re-used as a primary key in any personal cataloguing of the Sentinel data.
The maintenance activity will take place from 9:30 until 17:30 CET on 13 March 2017.
During the maintenance window service downtimes are foreseen both on the Open Access Hub and on the Copernicus Services Data Hub.
