Minimize CORE Datasets

This is the fixed part of the DWH offer: these datasets are typically pre-defined large datasets, covering the needs of the Copernicus services and other activities requesting Earth Observation data, like Union financed research projects and the activities of Union agencies (EEA, EMSA, SatCen, etc.). CORE datasets are characterised by fixed tasking, systematic or not, data processing and delivery timeliness parameters defined a priori.

Status of the coverage achievement for each dataset can be monitored via the CORE dataset status document updated monthly on the Data Provision Status section of the portal.

Optical VHR multispectral and panchromatic coverage over Europe (VHR_IMAGE_2015)

Land local component applications for hotspots, i.e. specific areas of interest at pan-European level (EEA39) (land cover over riparian zones for the purpose of biodiversity monitoring, monitoring of coastal areas, risk areas, protected areas (Natura 2000 sites), Land Parcel Identification…) and at national level.

European optical MR1 composites (MR_IMAGE_2015)

Pan-European land services and EFFIS. Intra-seasonal time series are essential for the production of High Resolution Layers (HRL) on land cover characteristics by the Union, EEA and Member States, in particular for vegetation related discrimination of characteristics, such as grasslands or semi-natural vegetation.

Optical HR Pan Europe coverage (HR_IMAGE_2015)

Continuation of pan-European land services, including Corine Land Cover (CLC) and the production of High Resolution Layers (HRL) on land cover characteristics by the Union, EEA and Member States. This dataset could also partially meet EFFIS requirements.

European HR2 Multitemporal Coverages (EUR_HR2_MULTITEMP)

Continuation of previous pan-European land services and land use/land cover mapping efforts. Multitemporal agricultural studies and crop classification. The objective of the wall-to-wall Multitemporal HR2 image acquisition is to cover the entire AOI on a monthly basis during the 2015 vegetation period.
