National Satellite Data Centre ESTHub

ESTHub is a national satellite data centre, which allows users to search and download Copernicus programme data. ESTHub also offers a hosted data processing service to governmental institutions.

ESTHub gathers Sentinel and Landsat 8 data for the Estonian area of interest and provides a fast download service. ESTHub downloads data through the Sentinel Collaborative Data Hub (ColHub) the access to which is restricted towards Collaborative Ground Segments. The Land Board has access to ColHub pursuant to the Agreement with the European Space Agency, which was signed by Enterprise Estonia in 2016. Most of the users download data through Open Access Hub, but ESTHub offers a much faster download speed.

For Sentinel 1 and 2, but also for Landsat 8, ESTHub offers data about 200 km beyond state borders (Figure 1),  for Sentinel 3 the area of interest covers the Baltic Sea and its surrounding area (Figure 2).

It is important to reference properly when using Copernicus data.

If you register (or you have been registered by the Land Board) for ESTHub's services, you will agree to the Land Board's rules for processing personal data.

Satiladu (satellite imagery warehouse)

Satellite data is also available to users in the Satiladu web application. Data are updated on daily basis and become available on the same evening.

With the help of an interactive map application it is possible to assess the potential added value of satellite data for your speciality, and it is also possible to create original map layers and share them with others. Main emphasis is laid on introducing the possibilities of how to use different parts of light spectrum and major land cover indices. For comparison also a map layer in common colours is available.

The web application contains satellite images over Estonia starting from July 2015.
