The data, collected by the Gaofen-1 and Gaofen-6 earth observation satellites, respectively launched in 2013 and 2018, will be accessible on the platform, CNSA revealed at the opening of the Group on Earth Observations (GEO) conference.

The platform allows users to search for and download data. It also carries information and functions such as policies and standards, data upgrades, data quality assessment and introduction of satellites, and displays satellite data applications.

By sharing the platform with the world, China is committed to building a global observation system that provides support for resource survey and observation, environmental monitoring and evaluation, emergency disaster forecasting and global climate change monitoring, and provides data for forestry and agriculture.
