Landmap: Radar Earth Observation Collection

Status: Not defined
Publication State: published


The radar data collected by the Landmap project consist of data from ERS (European Remote Sensing) Satellites 1 and 2 from 1995 to 1999, ENVISAT ASAR (Advanced Synthetic Aperture Radar) (available in image mode, alternating polarisation and wide swath from 2004 onwards) and ALOS PALSAR (Advanced Land Orbiting Satellite Phased Array Type L-band Synthetic Aperture Radar) data where Fine Beam Single (FBS), Fine Beam Dual (FBD) and Polarimetric (PLR) data are available from 2007 - 2009 for areas of the UK and Republic of Ireland. The Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) funded Landmap service which ran from 2001 to July 2014 collected and hosted a large amount of earth observation data for the majority of the UK, part of which was radar data. After removal of JISC funding in 2013, the Landmap service is no longer operational, with the data now held at the NEODC.
