For access to SPOT and Pléiades data via DINAMIS (Dispositif Institutionnel National d’Approvisionnement Mutualisé en Imagerie Satellitaire). DINAMIS, is a platform that acquires and distributes Earth satellite imagery for French institutional users (as well as scientific and public players) and European scientists (under specific subscription conditions) for research activities in the frame of their institutional missions and innovation purposes.

The platform aims to ease the access to very high resolution commercial optical satellite data (Pléiades, SPOT 6). It also serves as a relay for free high resolution optical and radar images.
