Welcome to the EOC Geoservice


The EOC Geoservice of the Earth Observation Center (EOC) of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) provides discovery, visualization, and direct download services for a selection of the geospatial data hosted by the German Satellite Data Archive (D-SDA). Based on web technologies and running on high-performance hardware large geospatial datasets can be accessed through the EOC Geoservice.

Latest News and Announcement

Release of MetOp-C GOME-2 map composites

Posted on May 27, 2020 by Administrator

The EOC Geoservice map context "MetOp GOME-2 Daily Total Column Composites" [1] shows composites calculated from daily products of different trace gases and cloud properties measured by the "Global Ozone Monitoring Experiment-2" (GOME-2) instruments onboard EUMETSAT's MetOp satellite series. The products data stream has now been accomplished by EUMETSAT's MetOp-C satellite unit which was launched in November 2018 and secures the future data flow at least until the year 2025. Please see the according news release [2] for further information.

In addition to the introduction of MetOp-C, the following changes have been performed to the MetOp GOME-2 WMS/WCS services:

  • The publication of MetOp-A maps in the Geoservice ended on 2020-04-07 and is superseded by MetOp-C.
  • The publication of MetOp-AB maps (combined composite products of MetOp-A and MetOp-B) ended on 2020-04-07 and is superseded by combined products using data from MetOp-B and MetOp-C. The existing older MetOp-AB and new MetOp-BC products are now available in a new "Combined" map layer as a continuous time-series.
  • NRT-products are no longer available as separate "LATEST/PREVIOUS"-layers, but are now included in the regular layers of the Daily ("P1D") products.

The new layer names and titles are defined using the following schema:

MetOp-B/C GOME-2:
Layer Name: METOP-[B/C]_GOME-2_L2C_P1D_[PARAMETER]
Layer Title: MetOp-[B/C] GOME-2 L2C Daily [PARAMETER]

MetOp GOME-2 Combined:
Layer Name: METOP_GOME-2_L2C_P1D_COMB_[PARAMETER]
Layer Title: MetOp GOME-2 L2C Daily [PARAMETER] Combined

The collections can be visualized in the EOC Geoservice Webapp [1] and accessed via OGC web services [3] [4].
