Earth observation (EO) is the collection, analysis and presentation of data to better understand our planet. Earth observations can be taken at a ground level or acquired from remote sensing platforms such as satellites. From above, satellites can collect data from sites all around the world, including places too remote to visit in person. Satellite images show large areas of the Earth’s surface at one time, making it easier to spot changes and to monitor the health of our planet.
EO Browser is an online platform that combines an archive of different Earth observation missions and can be used to find satellite images of any area of interest. Data is freely available.
EO Browser’s Education mode gives the option to access specific satellite data tailored to a selected theme. Themes cover different topics, from agriculture to atmosphere and water bodies.
