Data Acquisition Request (DAR) Information
A DAR allows a customer to provide the information necessary to schedule an acquisition over their area of interest. A new DAR is required for each area or data range. Please realize that scheduling conflicts and satellite maintenance may affect instrument availability and there are no guarantees of acquisition. This is a low volume satellite and only one scene per path may be acquired.
The USGS, in partnership with NASA, is providing a mechanism for the general public to specify location and timeframe for future acquisitions of data from the EO-1 satellite. There will be no charge for these tasking requests and they will be satisfied on a best effort basis as capacity is potentially available on EO-1. Users submitting tasking requests will be notified by email when their request has been completed, which is either when the area of interest was acquired or the acquisition window has expired. Data acquired in this process will be provided online at no charge. For further details please reference the detailed procedure for selection posted on the USGS Tasker Help Page.
