How Earth Observation Data are Processed

The data acquired by the Earth observation satellites are received by ground stations in Japan and overseas. Then the data are transferred to the server located at the JAXA’s Tsukuba Space Center through ground network and archived. 

JAXA analyzes satellite data and conducts development of algorithms to lead meaningful physical quantity for the Earth science and calibration and validation to secure the quality of satellite data. After these processes, satellite data are provided to the users.
