Dataset specifications

Digital Earth Africa hosts a repository of Earth observation datasets spanning continental Africa.

The input datasets, including CEOS Analysis Ready Data and ancillary data, are used to derive output services and can be accessed directly through the DE Africa Platform.

DE Africa also provide services which are information products derived from input datasets. The services are co-developed with partners and may be released at beta, provisional or operational maturity level. An operational service is continuously updated as required input datasets become available. Services may be updated, based on user feedback, to incorporate new sensors, new algorithms and auxiliary data.

If you have any feedback for the DE Africa data and services, please contact us at
