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

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

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]

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 Once approved, your PoC will send your request to 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 ([1]). ([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 [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.
