Data


WARNING: Due to increasing difficulties in updating time series from many different sources and because of changes in data distribution policies (eg. ECMWF) we are planning to phase out the SPIRITS Data download section starting on August 1st. Please let us know in case this is causing you any problems so that we can explore alternative data access. We would also like to signal that at the same time we are making available more data for download on the ASAP download site. However these are mainly agro-meteo and remote sensing indicators aggregated at GAUL1 level and not the original raster data.


SPIRITS works with images in ENVI format (.img) with a (SPIRITS-specific) enriched header file (.hdr). Virtually, all the most commonly used data formats can be converted into SPIRITS format using the SPIRITS import modules (based on GDAL library). However, to facilitate quick access to a number of common data sources, in this section we present links to repositories where we make available the data directly in SPIRITS format.

For acquisition of large data sets, we recommend to use batch download tools.
