Bringing remote sensing data and services in every day, to everybody, for every use

Finnish Meteorological Institute's National satellite data centre provides easy access to latest satellite data from Baltic Sea region and Nothern Hemisphere, dedicated data products unveiling the changes in Arctic environment and supports world wide research activites of Arctic conditions.


Finhub - The Finnish Sentinel collaborative ground segment
Provides complementary access to Sentinel data and/or to specific Sentinel data products

COSMO-SkyMed
The COSMO-SkyMed system is a constellation of four radar satellites for Earth Observation. The resolution syntheric aperture radar sensors to observe the Earth day and night, regardless of weather conditions.

Optical Satellite imagery
The latest optical direct broadcast imagery from EOS/MODIS and Suomi-NPP/VIIRS instruments

Satellite data products
NSDC provides several specific data products derived from satellite imagery. Products like Baltic Sea Ice status, cryospheric products like ground frost and hemisherical snow, atmospheric ozone, etc.

Inauguration of Arctic Satellite Centre

On April 5th 2017 the extension of the FMI's Arctic Satellite Centre at Sodankylä will be officially inaugurated. Arctic Space Centre of the Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI-ASC) in Sodankylä incorporates the main space infrastructure of Finland. The focus is on the utilization, calibration and validation of Earth Observation (EO) satellites. This includes direct data reception from polar orbiting EO satellites, processing and archiving of satellite data products, and the housing of satellite instrument's ground-based reference systems. Operational units of FMI apply Arctic Space Centre's data and products for supporting sea ice navigation in the Baltic Sea and for safety related monitoring and warnings e.g. aviation control in cases of volcanic eruptions and flood monitoring and space weather monitoring. The co-operative partners and funding agencies of FMI-ASC and NSDC include international space agencies (ESA, EUMETSAT, NASA, NOAA), European Union and national agencies and research institutes, such as the Finnish Environment Institute (SYKE).
