Archiving of ARSF Data

Archiving Digital Data

ARSF digital data sets acquired from 1984 onward are stored and accessible at the NERC Earth Observation Data Centre (NEODC)external link. The NEODC is a NERC Designated Data Centre and, as such, is tasked with the acquisition, archiving and provision of access to remotely sensed data of the surface of the Earth acquired by satellite and airborne sensors.

The airborne data comprise Airborne Thematic Mapper (ATM) multispectral imagery, hyperspectral images acquired with the Compact Airborne Spectrographic Imager (CASI) instrument, Airborne Laser Terrain Mapper (ALTM) LiDAR data and Rollei digital photography. The data have a wide range of spatial resolutions and cover sites from the UK, the Mediterranean, Svalbard and Iceland. Please contact:
