- The European Space Agency (ESA) has initiated a free and open service providing weekly surface reflectance composites for Europe and Africa. The project is named Culture-MERIS and targets land activities for agriculture and food security user communities. The Culture-MERIS demonstration products are based on data from Envisat's Medium Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MERIS) in full resolution (FR) (300 m), with improved geolocation and atmospheric correction, and are updated every Wednesday, providing information for the full previous week.
