A new version of the Copernicus Client (GCL/EOLI-SA) available to Copernicus users to browse the CDS catalogue and access the data delivered by Contributing Missions has been released. Users are invited to take note of the changes and to download the update from the EOLI-SA page.
17 products belonging to the HR_IMAGE_2015/DE/Coverage_1/L3_National dataset are being removed due to erroneous processing of SPOT-5 scenes in National projection.
Copernicus users of Contributing Missions data are here informed that a new version of the Mission-specific Annex to the ESA-User license is available here that supersedes the previous version, correcting the acknowledgement to be used for SPOT-6/7 data. The updated Annex is applicable for all data downloaded since April 2015 and until further notice.
Following a request from the Land Monitoring Service, the Pleiades L3 data processing for the VHR_IMAGE_2015 dataset has been updated to reduce a geometric shift observed in the overlap area between Pleiades 1A and Pleiades 1B images.

During the CSCDA Workshop at ESA ESRIN (20-22 April 2015) a round table on “Harmonisation of orthorectification methods for optical missions” discussed the issues of non-uniformity of the terminology of the data distributed by the CCMEs. Indeed, currently there is no international agreement as to the terminology to be used to identify a product on the basis of the corrections applied. This may explain the plethora of names and level codes used by the data providers to identify their products. As conclusion of this Workshop an action was given to the Coordinated data Quality Control (CQC) team: to consolidate definitions of “product-level groups” and CCMEs to specify in which group each of their processing levels belongs to.
