SPOT-VEGETATION data collection migration
We are currently in progress of phasing out legacy portals step by step. This means the current data distribution system www.vito-eodata.be will be replaced by a new catalogue, named OSCARS (Open Search Catalogue for Remote Sensing data). A complementary user interface will be updated as well using todays technologies and a modern and intuitive user interface.
All our Copernicus Sentinel collections can already be found using the Terrascope viewer application in which you can browse, view, compare, export the different collections. The next step is to add the entire archive of SPOT-VEGETATION data to the new catalogue system for further exploration in parallel to the existing collection, expected to be exposed around the end of June 2021. The existing SPOT-VEGETATION collection on the www.vito-eodata.be portal will be entirely phased out on September 30, 2021.
