Remote sensing as a service


Operational change detection and monitoring service

We announce our operational production service delivering image to image change detection. Our service is making use of our massive Sentinel 2 data catalog. The implemented algorithm utilizes a pair of images over the same region on the ground to calculate changes on the Earth's surface.


Operational services for automatic atmospheric correction of Sentinel-2 Level 1C images

We are happy to announce another EOSS core service delivering Sentinel 2 Level 2A products.
We implement the Sen2Cor software suite for applying atmospheric correction to Sentinel Level 1C data. We deliver all resolution Level 2A data products along with data masks and auxiliary information. The service makes use of our large and complete archive of Sentinel 2 images worldwide. Level 2A products are processed on the granule level or for whole Sentinel 2 data strips.


A free catalog for searching and downloading Sentinel 2 and Landsat 5, 7, 8 full archive imagery

We are happy to announce another public online catalog for searching and downloading Sentinel 2 and Landsat satellite imagery available at The catalog service provides full access to all Landsat 5, 7, and 8 and Sentinel 2a scenes and our database is updated daily.
We focus on simplicity. The catalog offers the basic search parameterization by geographic name (we support national objects and subnational objects at the first administrative level and as an ‘Add On’ the Mexican National Protected Areas. However, this is extendable to whatever geographic object), Sensor (of either Landsat 5, Landsat 7, Landsat 8, or Sentinel 2), date range of image acquisition, and maximum cloud coverage per scene. The catalog search results are aggregated on Landsat’s path/row grid and the Sentinel’s granule grid, respectively. The search results map representation presents the spatial-quantitative aggregation of registered datasets that fit the search parameters. The detailed scene representation provides general scene metadata and preview and gives access to direct scene download. A list of search results can also be exported for those who prefer batch scripting the download of all scenes in one go. The extended EOSS catalog, to be released soon, will provide scene processing as a service which will include standard atmospheric correction, image segmentation and feature extraction.
The EOSS Image Catalog Lite is available at and is licensed under the GNU General Public License Version 3.

We are looking forward to any feedback or comment which you can directly post via the catalog’s feedback tool.

Data catalogs

The EOSS catalogs provides the system for querying, management and distribution of satellite imagery and geospatial information from different platforms and vendors. The catalog features multiple provider (e.g. USGS, ESA, PlanetLabs) and data support and allows for the integration of customer specific data. The EOSS catalog provides customer friendly access via web based clients and management consoles. The catalog implements data standardization including data preprocessing and metadata handling. Connected data sources are harvested periodically to incorporate updates to the system.

Automated data processing

The EOSS processing system features a cost efficient and scalable processing of spatial data in the cloud. It supports multiple satellite sensors and data and their fusion. EOSS standard support includes optical high and very high resolution satellite imagery provided by the new sensors of Landsat 8 and Sentinel-2A. It further builds upon the PlanetLabs platform and supports RapidEye and Planetscope imagery.


Sensor specific pre-processing are core components and include atmospheric correction, data and format standardization and harmonization. EOSS extends standard pre-processing modules by enhanced developments, for example a RapidEye based cloud and shadow detection that outperforms the standard RapidEye "unusable data mask (UDM)".

Thematic processors

EOSS automated thematic processors feature customizable land cover mapping, change and anomaly detection and map updating. Solutions are driven by sensor specific workflows, growing training databases and machine learning and computer vision technology.

Computed geometry

Vector generalization and object aggregation with respect of minimum mapping unit and object neighborhood relations to produce consistent large area digital cartographic products in various scales.

Computer aided production

EOSS provides the protocols, tools and experts to support expert based post production and quality control. These include feasibility studies that provide the potentials and limitations of an envisaged mapping project as also a cost estimation. The EOSS system includes technical solutions for expert based vector post-processing and verification and implement standard protocols for product accuracy assessment.

EOSS “Image Catalog Lite”

"Rocking the rare combo of Landsat 5, 7, 8 and Sentinel-2, EOSS’s online viewer finds a way to balance a simple design with an extensive catalogue of imagery. Their volume-of-images-summarized-in-a-square-grid approach is reminiscent of Libra and OpenAerialMap and seems to be a popular choice for facing the admittedly difficult design challenge of summarizing coverage on a map interface."
