Methods & Expertise for Research Infrastructure

The EODC infrastructure allows for the possibility to remotely access one’s workspace from anywhere and at the same time directly access all available data without the need to download them to a processing system. For an overview of the functions of the infrastructure see the core facility "EODC Earth Observation Data Centre".

The infrastructure is open to all scientific users under the same transparent and non-discriminatory conditions. Access to the infrastructure is provided by the EODC through various services (e.g. time-limited cloud platform accounts) or by becoming one of the partners of the EODC cooperation network (https://www.eodc.eu/cooperation-network/). Individual researchers and developers may request free time-limited accounts for testing and specific research projects (approval necessary).
