This report is a continuation of the work presented in the report “Preparations for acquisition and application of optical satellite data for Norway Digital” (Trollvik et al., 2012). The main goal has been to specify the requirements for a national satellite data centre for optical satellite data from the Sentinel-2 and Landsat series Earth observation satellites. The main objective of a national satellite data centre is to facilitate easy access to and use of Sentinel-2 and Landsat 8 data for Norwegian users.
The report is prepared by a group of specialists from Norway Digital: Arnt Kr. Gjertsen, Norwegian Forest and Landscape Institute, Anna Birgitta Ledang, Norwegian Institute for Water Research, Johan Danielsen and Ragnvald Larsen, Norwegian Environment Agency, and Jon Arne Trollvik, Norwegian Mapping Authority. Kai Sørensen, Norwegian Institute for Water Research has also contributed to the report. Trollvik has been the project manager.
The report suggests how satellite imagery and data from the Sentinel 2 and Landsat 8 series satellites could be received and prepared for further use within the Norwegian Spatial Data Infrastructure (Norge Digitalt)
