FEDEO

PURPOSE

FedEO (Federated Earth Observation missions access) provides a unique entry point to a growing number of scientific catalogues and services for, but not limited to, EO European and Canadian missions.  FedEO is deployed with ESA (European Space Agency) infrastructure as a gateway to:

  • Provide brokered discovery, access and ordering capability to European/Canadian EO missions data based on HMA (Heterogeneous Missions Accessibility) interfaces;
  • Implement the OpenSearch OGC (Open Geospatial Consortium) and other interfaces for an increased number of discoverable and accessible EO data collections;
  • Implement the OpenSearch OGC interfaces for interfacing with CEOS Community Catalogues and Clients.

FedEO was initially developed as a prototype for GEO/GEOSS (Group on Earth Observations/Global Earth Observation System of Systems) and for EO-DAIL (Earth Observation Data Access & Integration Layer).  It was consolidated after the CEOS Plenary in 2012 to facilitate access to European missions data in the international context and primarily in CEOS.

OBJECTIVES AND USE SCENARIOS

FedEO supports the following ESA EO Directorate Objectives:

  • Ensure timely and easy access to all EO data resources (current and historical) to the broad data user community;
  • Strengthen the ESA role in supporting national missions in both a European and global context;
  • Establish and reinforce strategic cooperation with international partners and strengthen ESA role in coordinating and representing MSs in the international fora;

Through providing a gateway:

  • to European EO data to facilitate discovery & access in the international context (e.g. GEO, CEOS) and the support to international initiatives and projects - (Scenario 1)
  • for European users and projects (e.g. TEPs) to European and non-European EO data - (Scenario 2)
  • facilitating ESA bilateral cooperation activities and data exchange (e.g. with NASA) – (Scenario 3)
