Eligible users

French authorized institutional users

Authorized Institutional Users (AIUs) eligible for DINAMIS services are all scientific stakeholders, wherever they are based, and all public stakeholders and their French private contractors working under a government contract in France or for their own R&D.

DINAMIS services are therefore accessible to:

  • French institutional entities: government, ministerial, regional, departmental, local and borough agencies, universities, research laboratories and teaching establishments
  • Organizations or non-profit associations pursuing a public-service mission

Access and cost

Pléiades and Spot 6-7 very-high-resolution data in the DINAMIS Catalogue are accessible free of charge to AIUs.

New data— (archive data and tasking requests —of specified areas of interest can be acquired free on a quota basis. Outside these quotas, data are available to public stakeholders at a preferential institutional rate and to scientists with co-funding.

All subscription requests must now go through the online DINAMIS portal, where you are required to complete a subscription form indicating your Entity and its Legal Representative, as well as a DINAMIS Contact.

The Entity’s Legal Representative receives the Subscription Request generated from the details provided in the online form. They must then confirm their request and the Entity’s details, and agree to the terms of the DINAMIS charter and DINAMIS product User Licences electronically.

You must then create your user account to access DINAMIS services.
