Following methods are available for accessing PROBA-V data.
All products are distributed free of charge.

  • Viewer
    The viewer provides fast access to PROBA-V data. You can easily search, view and compare various data layers. Via the ‘Export’ and ‘Download tab you can download png images, GIF timelapses or the original data in just a few clicks. 
  • Catalogue API
    The PROBA-V products are available in the Terrascope catalogue which allows you to search through the data. The viewer provides a way to do this manually, but when you are programming yourself, you can use the web service or the Python client. The OpenSearch Web Service implements the standard Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) Opensearch EO interface, which is also implemented by other remote sensing data providers. For Python developers, a Python client is made available. 

    Next to the OpenSearch service, the Terracatalogue supports an experimental STAC API with limited functionality. 

    The search responses include data access URLs, which can be used for downloading the EO data products and related quicklooks and metadata. Authentication is required for the product download

  • Virtual Machine
    With the user Virtual Machine (VM), a developer or researcher can access a Virtual Research Environment with access to the complete PROBA-V data archive and a powerful set of tools and libraries to work with the data (e.g. SNAP toolbox, GRASS GIS, QGIS) or to develop-debug test applications (R, Python or Java). 

  • Notebooks
    The notebooks application allows you to create and share documents that contain live code, equations, visualizations and explanatory text. It is directly integrated with the Hadoop processing cluster to enable large scale processing.
