What is EODMS?[edit | edit source]

The Earth Observation Data Management System (EODMS) is a fully integrated geospatial platform provided by NRCan/RNCan to the general public to discover and access authoritative Earth Observation (EO) data.

The site is located at https://www.eodms-sgdot.nrcan-rncan.gc.ca/index_en.jsp

Figure: The new EODMS allows users to discover, preview, and order a variety of Earth Observation data from many satellites.

History[edit | edit source]

With the second largest landmass on earth and the longest coastline in the world, Canada relies on satellite technology to monitor its land and borders. Providing access to this technology is a core mandate of NRCan's Canada Centre for Mapping and Earth Observation (CCMEO). CCMEO is the Government of Canada’s Centre of Expertise for remote sensing and geodesy. Through partnerships with government stakeholders, strong links to academia and the private sector, including international collaborations, CCMEO ensures that satellite data is available to serve the needs of the Canadian Government and Canadians. Since 1971, CCMEO has accumulated an archive in excess of 1 PB of Earth Observation (EO) data. This data originated from various satellites and airborne sensors. The 2012 Canadian Federal Budget included NRCan’s revitalization plan which sought to maintain and improve Canada’s EO satellite capacity and access to this data. This plan was realised through the purchase and installation of four (4) new antennas as well as EODMS which decommissioned several legacy systems.

Services[edit | edit source]

Today, CCMEO delivers several EO data services to in support the Government of Canada’s priorities on economic development of natural resources, the North, safety, security, sovereignty, and environmental monitoring.

EODMS[edit | edit source]

Service delivery is done with the Earth Observation Data Management System (EODMS), Today, EODMS provides various services for a number of EO datasets:

  • The user-access-controlled discovery and ordering of RADARSAT 1,2 (R1, R1), RADARSAT Constellation Mission (RCM), and commercial imagery procured through the NMSO (i.e. COSMOS-Skymed, Deimos-2, DMC, EROS-B, Flock1-ISS, Flock1-SSO, GeoEye-1, GF-1, GHGSat-D, IKONOS, IRS1C-LISS3, IRS1C-PAN, IRS1C-WiFS, IRS1D-LISS3, IRS1D-PAN, IRS1D-WiFS, IRSP6-AWiFS, IRSP6-LISS3, IRSP6-LISS4, KOMPSAT-2, KOMPSAT-3, KOMPSAT-5, PLEIADES, QuickBird-2, RapidEye, SPOT-4, SPOT-5, SPOT-6, SPOT-7, TanDEM-X, Terra, Terra/Aqua, TerraSAR-X, WorldView-1, WorldView-2, WorldView-3, WorldView-4, ZY-3).
  • The generic public discovery R1/R2/RCM RAW and the discovery and ordering of Canada Centre for Remote Sensing (CCRS) Thematic Data Sets, and the National Air Photo Library

MMA[edit | edit source]

Behind EODMS sits CCMEO’s Multi-Mission Archive (MMA) which is the authoritative repository of Raw Canadian Earth Observation data in Canada. CCMEO has approximately 1PB of Earth Observation Data of which the main holdings are RADARSAT-1, RADARSAT-2, and NMSO commercial satellite imagery. In addition, the CCMEO archive will hold all RCM data received in Canada (all data received at CCMEO as well as DND’s Polar Epsilon stations). The current capacity of the archive is currently 3 PB and will grow by 1 PB each year. The data stored robustly using redundant storage and stored securely to comply with RSSSA laws on access controls and dissemination.


Special Access (NMSO, RADARSAT-1,2)[edit | edit source]

NMSO[edit | edit source]

Did you know that all Government of Canada employees with a mandate involving geospatial imagery can be granted free access to NMSO-CSI already purchased by the GoC available on EODMS? You need only send an account request to your Department point of contact (PoC) for the NMSO-CSI account approval. If you do not know your PoC, simply email nrcan.eodms-sgdot.rncan@canada.ca. Once approved, your PoC will send your request to nrcan.eodms-sgdot.rncan@canada.ca to add special NMSO privileges to your EODMS account.

RADARSAT[edit | edit source]

Did you know that you can also request access to RADARSAT-1 and RADARSAT-2 products already purchased by the Government of Canada on EODMS. You can send your request for an account to the Canadian Space Agency Order Desk (ASC.r-sat.CSA@Canada.ca). (Learn more about RADARSAT)

CSA Special Access Programs[edit | edit source]

Did you know that CSA coordinates several [RADARSAT access programs] to encourage the use of space data including the The International Charter: Space and Major Disasters. Find out more on here.

EODMS accounts are granted to, and must only be used by the specified user; accounts are assigned to individuals (authorized users), and not to Departments or groups of people. Both accounts and passwords remain the property of the Government of Canada, and cannot be transferred to other individuals. All accounts are subject to the policies and regulations of the Government of Canada (e.g., the Treasury Board Policy on the Use of Electronic Networks and the NRCan Policy on the Use of Electronic Networks)

What's New?[edit | edit source]

The upgrade to EODMS (from NEODF) brings new support for previously discover-able NMSO commericial imagery including DMC Constellation, TerraSAR-X, SPOT-4 to 7, Cosmo Skymed. There is also new support for the RADARSAT-2 NITF format:

Prior to this users would have to look for this data without the help of a map on the NEODF FTP directory structure.
