Welcome to EnMAP

The German Spaceborne Imaging Spectrometer Mission

The Environmental Mapping and Analysis Program (EnMAP) is a German hyperspectral satellite mission that aims at monitoring and characterising Earth’s environment on a global scale. EnMAP measures and models key dynamic processes of Earth’s ecosystems by extracting geochemical, biochemical and biophysical parameters that provide information on the status and evolution of various terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. For more information about the main objectives and the status have a look at the mission page.


  • EnMAP-Box Version 3.7 released
    published on November 05, 2020

    A new version of the EnMAP-Box is now available. The EnMAP-Box is a QGIS plug-in for the visualisation and processing of hyperspectral data. The new version includes product readers for EnMAP L1B, L2C and L2A, PRISMA L2D and DESIS L2A images and a first version of Spectral Math in the QGIS Expression Builder. A list of all improvements can be found in the changelog.

  • Updated website online
    published on August 10, 2020

    The website has been completely revised in the last few weeks now that the launch is getting closer. Several subpages have been updated, such as the one on EnMAP data products and access, and new content has been added, such as on the currently developed online learning platform HYPERedu. Enjoy exploring! Should you have any questions or would like to be added to the EnMAP mailing list, please visit the revised contact page.

  • EARSeL Imaging Spectroscopy Workshop 2022
    published on July 26, 2020

    The 12th EARSeL Imaging Spectrosocopy Workshop will be held in Potsdam, Germany, in March 2022. It will be jointly organized by EARSeL and GFZ Potsdam, location of the scientific PI of the EnMAP mission, in cooperation with the University of Potsdam and the University of Greifswald. Please visit the workshop website for more information.

  • HYPERedu educational resources on imaging spectroscopy
    published on November 04, 2019

    The development of HYPERedu, an online learning platform for hyperspectral remote sensing to be hosted on EO College, has started as part of the EnMAP education initiative. HYPERedu will provide master’s level slide collections, hands-on tutorials with the EnMAP-Box and short educational films on principles, methods and applications of imaging spectroscopy. The first resources were published in September 2019 and more will follow in the coming months. Furthermore, the development of a hyperspectral MOOC with several modules addressing students as well as professionals in research, companies, and public agencies is planned.

  • Change of Science Principal Investigator
    published on March 25, 2019

    In March 2019, Sabine Chabrillat was appointed the new Scientific Principal Investigator of the EnMAP mission succeeding Luis Guanter, who took up a professorship position at the Universitat Politècnica de València and will continue to work in the EnSAG and EnMAP product validation. Sabine Chabrillat is head of the working group "Hyperspectral remote sensing applications” and head of the spectroscopy lab at GFZ Potsdam. She is an expert in soil spectroscopy and had been involved in the EnMAP proposal and the scientific preparation of the EnMAP mission all along.
