Welcome to EnMAP

The German Spaceborne Imaging Spectrometer Mission

The Environmental Mapping and Analysis Program (EnMAP) is a German hyperspectral satellite mission that monitors and characterizes Earth’s environment on a global scale. EnMAP measures geochemical, biochemical and biophysical variables providing information on the status and evolution of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. More information about the main objectives and the status can be found on the mission page.


  • Back to Nominal Operations
    published on February 13, 2023

    Since 13.02.2023 14:00 UTC EnMAP is back to nominal operations.

    A software update has recovered the anomaly, no limitations of functionality persist, no use of redundancies was required. Acquisition requests by users will be considered. Quality control of first acquisitions was successful, no impacts on performance have been identified, but the evaluation of calibration is still on-going. In case that data acquired in February 2023 might benefit from adjusted calibration and re-ordering from the archive is recommended, we will notify you here at enmap.org.

  • Mission outage is still being resolved
    published on February 03, 2023

    The EnMAP mission outage is currently still being resolved. The necessary software update is undergoing testing and fine-tuning. The instrument functionalities are intact and we are confident to resume routine operations soon. We will keep you informed.

  • The Special AO #00002: Long-Term Ecosystem Monitoring will be extended until 30.06.2023
    published on January 30, 2023

    The Special AO aims at long-term ecosystem monitoring spanning observation timescales of more than 1 year. Diagnostic geochemical, biochemical, and biophysical parameters need to be monitored using time series analyses in combination with in-situ measurements to describe the dynamics of various ecosystems in order to improve our understanding of complex environmental processes. This will significantly contribute to environmental research studies, particularly in the fields of ecosystem functions, plant traits, natural resource management, natural hazards, and Earth system modelling.

  • Hyperspectral/Multispectral Imaging and Sounding of the Environment (HISE) - Call for Papers
    published on January 18, 2023

    The next HISE (Hyperspectral/Multispectral Imaging and Sounding of the Environment) meeting will be held in Munich between the 31st of July and 03rd of August 2023. The Abstract and Summary submission deadline for the workshop is the 28 March 2023.
    Please find more details in the flyer and on the workshop website.

  • Recovery actions of EnMAP instrument on-going
    published on January 12, 2023

    The anomaly is understood and recovery actions are being installed. Early next week the instrument will be operational again and image datatakes can be obtained. For routine operations, a software patch will have to be uploaded to the satellite, which is expected in January. At the moment, no remaining limitations for instrument functionalities nor performance are expected. We will keep you up-to-date here at enmap.org.
