POSTEL, demonstrator of thematic Land Data Centre

Postel has associated R&D and services from 2001 to 2008 to describe the soil and vegetation from Earth Observation satellite data, at regional and global scales.

The products developed in POSTEL were spatialized variables describing vegetation and soils, radiation, water and land cover at 300 m resolution.

The Postel products were conceived to be available free of charge to the international science community. They are now distributed by Theia.
