Free GIS Datasets - Categorised List OpenStreetMapData Are you tired of ho-hum cartography advice? European Environment Agency - GIS Data and Maps The pan-European High-Resolution Vegetation Phenology and Productivity product suite (HR-VPP) are provided at a high spatial resolution (10 m x 10 m) with a high repeat frequency. They are derived from the optical Sentinel-2 constellation data (Sentinel-2A and Sentinel-2B) with a revisit time of 5 days. They are generated over the entire EEA39 region (33 member countries and 6 cooperating countries) from January 1 2017 onwards, with a daily, 10-daily and yearly frequency (see below). The HR-VPP product suite contains 3 product groups, 31 product types, 1522 files and more than 900.000 tiles per year, which totals more than 80 Terra Bytes of data, per year. The figure shows the difference in emissions of POPs between 2005 and 2019 This interactive data viewer provides accounts of imperviousness, i.e. land surface sealing status in Europe (EEA39 and EU27+UK) for the year 2018. Historical greenhouse gas emissions from the EU buildings sector show a decreasing trend since 2005.

ImagePlot visualization software: explore patterns in large image collections What is ImagePlot? ImagePlot is a free software tool that visualizes collections of images and video of any size. It is implemented as a macro which works with the open source image processing program ImageJ. ImagePlot was developed by the Software Studies Initiative with support from the National Endowment for Humanities (NEH), the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2), and the Center for Research in Computing and the Arts (CRCA). See your whole image collection in a single visualization. Existing visualization tools show data as points, lines, and bars. Better understand media collections and make new discoveries. Visualize image collections as timelines and scatter plots which display all images in a collection. Visualize change. We include macros which automatically measure various visual properties of every image in collection (or every frame in a video). Visualize image collections of any size. From a few dozens to millions of images.
