TERRASCOPE is the Belgian Collaborative Ground Segment. Colloborative ground segments are set up in the EU's member states to make the access to Europe's Sentinel data more user-friendly for its citizens and to facilitate data exploitation. Sentinel satellites are at the core of Europe's Copernicus programme which aims for an operational, accessible  Earth observation capacity for EU's policy needs and for its citizens.

In addition to making standard satellite products available to the users, TERRASCOPE also offers a set of visualisation tools and computing capacity to extract geo-information from satellite imagery.
