The motivation of the Earth Land Information System (ELIS) web pages is to increase the understanding of terrestrial biosphere by providing information derived from space data.
The information are related to the monitoring and the status of terrestrial surfaces through products derived from actual space sensors. The ELIS can be used over global scale at 10 km and over Regional at 1.2 km of spatial resolution.
The access to the products is done interactively using a map server.
A user account is however requested to use ELIS (there will be no charges for downloading products).
This information will be ONLY used to communicate, e.g. to inform you about updates or availability of new products.
Your user information will never be redistributed, sold, or exchanged with other parties.
Please go to the registration page to make an user account.
The actual products are generated from the SeaWiFS and MERIS instrument using the JRC-FAPAR algorithm.
Please, consult the HELP for more information.
