Leveraging years of multi-scale optical system geometric and radiometric calibration and characterization experience, the EROS Cal/Val Center of Excellence (ECCOE) is a global leader in improving the accuracy, precision, and quality of remote sensing data.
ECCOE Staff provide technical support to a number of USGS projects that are important in Earth Observation discovery and data characterization.
ECCOE maintains primary responsibility for radiometric and geometric characterization and calibration of the Landsat instruments and spacecrafts.
The Joint Agency Commercial Imagery Evaluation (JACIE) team assesses the quality and capabilities of newly launched commercial high-resolution satellites.
The Land Remote Satellites Online Compendium contains details about past, present and future Earth observing satellites and the sensors they carry.
Lidar data and their derivative metrics are fundamental inputs to many areas of scientific research, including flood, erosion, and coastal modeling.
Uncrewed Aerial Systems (UAS) allow for new opportunities for gathering data essential to land management and Earth science.
The Test Site Catalog Contains worldwide calibration sites used for post launch characterization and calibration of space-based optical imaging sensors.
