Since 2005, the Geosuccess website has been providing for free operational products based on remote sensing data . Not less than 500 users have downloaded Geosuccess products so far. This success inspired us to invest in a renewed service with improved products and an upgraded server environment. Unfortunately, we cannot direct you immediately to this new service as it is still under validation. During the summer of 2011 the new service will be launched which will certainly be announced to all known Geosuccess users. Please note that the actual Geosuccess service has stopped on 01-02-2011.
In the meantime, we can offer you the following list of alternatives:
