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.
We are processing the queue as quickly as possible and are working on improvements. Meanwhile, new requests can still be submitted but may occasionally be stored and scheduled subsequently in situations of extreme load, delaying the execution of the orders. While waiting for your request being scheduled, we kindly suggest to browse the archive to check if your area of interest has already been observed by the satellite.
Unexpected outage since December 7published on December 08, 2023
Since Thursday, December 7, the EnMAP mission has experienced an unexpected interruption and no image acquisitions have been performed since then. The problem has been analyzed and recovery is underway. We expect to resume operations latest on December 22. Other EnMAP services, such as catalog ordering and future acquisition planning, are not affected by this outage.
Back to nominal operations on 27.10.2023published on November 07, 2023
After a two-week interruption, the EnMAP mission resumed nominal operations on Friday 27.10.2023. The analysis of the newly acquired data shows that both the VNIR and SWIR sensors are working properly. User requests have been taken into account again since the resumption of operations.

1st EnMAP user workshoppublished on October 16, 2023The 1st EnMAP User Workshop was held online from 10-11 October 2023. Out of the 430 international registered users, about 200 audience members continuously followed the EnMAP-related presentations of 46 speakers. The presented results underlined the success of the EnMAP mission so far and gave insight into the future potential of the EnMAP mission. The combination of presentations from general mission information, application references, and current and future VNIR/SWIR missions stimulated the synergies of the different application fields. It highlighted the mission's importance for environmental challenges.
