The Satellite Image Data Service provides web-based access for UK academia to orthorectified Landsat, SPOT, European Remote Sensing (ERS) radar data, Advanced Synthetic Aperture Radar (ASAR), Digital Elevation Model (DEM) and Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) data for the UK. To view data the user would click a thumbnail tile of an image on the website
and see a static screenshot. The aim of this research has been to investigate Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) compliant servic es to provide an interactive mapping system. Therefore users can utilise the mapping interface to explore the satellite imagery available and gain integral knowledge of the data before download. In addition, these services will provide the experience to
offer services that can interoperate with other UK academic providers of spatial data.
