The eStation is a collecting and processing service developed by the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission to conceived to automatically deal with the reception, processing, analysis and dissemination of key environmental parameters derived from remotely sensed data. The measurements are obtained from the SPOT/VGT, SEVIRI/MSG and TERRA-AQUA/MODIS Earth Observation systems.
In addition to the web processing service, the eStation offers a number of web clients made available to different end-users for computing ad-hoc thematic products and environmental indicators. All processing steps are easily configurable allowing the user to modify the generated environmental indicators and to implement new ones.
The eStation has been distributed physically in 50 African countries in the frame of the AMESD project (African Monitoring of Environment for Sustainable Development).
