Data Access at Your Fingertips
The free, full and open data policy adopted for the Copernicus programme foresees access available to all users for the Sentinel data products, via a simple pre-registration.
Who needs to register:
Registration is open to all users via simple on-line self-registration accessible via the Sentinels Scientific Data Hub.
Member States requiring data for national initiatives in the frame of the Sentinels Collaborative Ground Segment need not register on this service, they are served via the dedicated access point.
Following registration, the user can immediately download Sentinel products generated systematically from all acquired data. Please note that depending on the mission and the acquisition time of the product, the full operational qualification may not yet be completed.
Data Access Overview
The Copernicus Space Component (CSC) Ground Segment data dissemination implements the Copernicus Data Policy, and is based on an evolutionary approach to further enhance the data exploitation by the broad user community.
The CSC data dissemination features:
Data Access Infrastructure
Four data access infrastructures typologies are available to users:
User Service Charter
The CSC Ground Segment provides a set of main user services (i.e. User Service Charter), available independently from the data access infrastructure, featuring:
Data Access evolution
The CSC GS data access infrastructure and user Service Charter is updated on a regular basis to integrate the Sentinel missions as they get launched and commissioned, and to adapt to the evolving needs of the broad user community.
Referring to the news of 29 November announcing the new Sentinel-2 Level-1C products format, ESA is pleased to confirm that the distribution of the new format is effective on all new products since sensing orbit 7608 included, acquired on 06 December 2016.
05 December 2016
Please be informed that due to ground segment maintenance activities at EUMETSAT from 6 to 8 December 2016, daily from 07:30 to 17:30 UTC, there will be a risk of data dissemination interruption for all Sentinel-3A products.
Referring to the Sentinel-2 Level-1C products format evolution described in the news of 5 August, and further to the introduction on 21 September of the products distribution in single-tile packages, ESA is pleased to announce that the new products will start being distributed according to the final format subject of this evolution starting on Tuesday 6 December.
28 November 2016
As a consequence of a data dissemination anomaly, Sentinel-2A Level-1C products have not been published in the data hubs since Saturday 26 November 2016.
The anomaly was promptly resolved and publishing on the Sentinel data hubs has now restarted.
