Welcome to the COVE Portal
The CEOS Visualization Environment (COVE) tool is a browser-based system that leverages Google-Earth to display satellite sensor coverage areas and identify coincidence scene locations. The NASA CEOS System Engineering Office (SEO) worked with the Committee on Earth Observing Satellites (CEOS) Working Group on Calibration and Validation to develop the COVE tool.
CEOS is currently operating and planning hundreds of Earth observation satellites. Standard Calibration and Validation (Cal/Val) exercises to compare near-simultaneous surface observations and identify corresponding image pairs are time-consuming and labor-intensive. The COVE suite of tools has been developed to make such tasks easier.
New! A paper on COVE was published in IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing.
