Earth Observation

Data Access, Image Services and Metadata
Maps/graphs/tabular data presented on this website are pre-processed, published-ready products, originated from the satellite imagery (raster format). All ASIS raster datasets (global extent, 1 km resolution, 1984-present, over 16,000 raster layer) can be interactively visualized/analyzed at FAO Hand-in-Hand Geospatial Portal ((HiH GP) at this address: https://data.apps.fao.org/?share=g-e85282509087fb39d512e3d9060f57c8. Every raster layer rendered by HiH GP, as well as the specific area on the layer, can be accessed/referred by a dedicated ASIS API. Please consult the API configuration help page for detailed information: https://data.apps.fao.org/giews-share-config-generator?help.

ASIS datasets have been published by FAO as Image Services (WMS) that allow for further analysis in an array of third-party applications. The datasets also have been disseminated on Google Earth Engine (GEE). To request the access to ASIS asset on GEE, please send an email to [email protected].
