EOWEB® - Earth Observation Data Service
Announcement: DLR has recently released the new EOWEB GeoPortal (EGP). EOWEB and EGP will be operated in parallel while we continue to populate the data catalog in EGP. Once this transition is complete, EGP will become the primary data access tool. EOWEB will remain available for TerraSAR-X and TanDEM-X.

EOWEB GeoPortal (EGP)

EGP is the new DLR Earth observation portal. It provides the same data discovery and ordering functionality as EOWEB - and much more! Key new features are:
  • Updated graphic user interface with a new and fresh look and feel
  • Spatio-temporal product discovery with improved map and query functionalities
  • Two-Step search and discovery for browsing data collections and searching for individual products
  • Product ordering via an improved user interface and guided ordering process
  • Selected products available for direct download
  • Mapping client to create maps from our data and integrate external data via standard web mapping services

You can login with your existing EOWEB user name and password - or browse as a guest. Help and assistance is available in the EGP Help Pages.

EGP and EOWEB will be operated in parallel while we continue to populate our data collections in EGP. Thus some data are currently available in both portals and some in either EGP or EOWEB. This table will help you locate the data you need.

For ordering new TerraSAR-X acquisitions, please continue using EOWEB.

EGP has been developed and validated using the highest possible standards. However, the occasional feature may not yet work correctly. Please send feedback which helps us improve the EGP interface and usability to geoservice@dlr.de. Requests regarding your orders should - as always - be addressed to dfd-orderdesk@dlr.de.
