Services and datasets provided by ORFEUS Data Center (ODC)

ODC and 8 other European datacenters contribute data to ORFEUS' distributed data archive EIDA (European Integrated Data Archive). Identical requests for open data to each EIDA nodes provide identical data. However, each node may also provide unique, restricted data and additional services. Click on a node (left menu) for detailed information on specific datasets and/or access tools.

ORFEUS Data Center offers open access to the ODC archive ( VEBSN ) and all EIDA stations with unrestricted access.

ORFEUS Data Center is hosted by KNMI.
