Access high-quality data with different processing options

VITO Remote Sensing hosts all data collected by the European Airborne Prism EXperiment (APEX) sensor. The total APEX archive comprises about 47 TB of data gathered across Europe. The applications span a wide range of research topics:

  • land-cover mapping
    mountains, coastal areas, rivers & lakes, nature reserves, agriculture and urban regions
  • assessment of important structural and (bio)physical characteristics
  • tracing atmospheric gases
  • biophysical parameters
    chlorophyll, colored dissolved organic matter, suspended sediment

After radiometric, geometric and atmospheric processing, this data has been provided to numerous Belgian and European researchers, institutes and agencies, including the

  • European Space Agency (ESA)
  • European Facility for Airborne Research (EUFAR)
  • Belgian Science Policy Office (BELSPO)
