Get started

Here you will find guidance on how to create a user account and enter the platform, as well as introductory videos and the User Manual.

Registration and login

User authentication for the Forestry TEP platform is managed by the ESA EOIAM authentication system. This is how you can get started.

  1. Register an ESA EOIAM account. Please follow the link that you will receive in an email to complete the registration.
  2. Login with your account using your email address as the user name, and you will be redirected to the platform.

New users are able to enter into a 30-day free trial package. Upon depletion of the free trial package, you can subscribe to one of the offered packages to continue using the platform. Learn about the contents and differences of the subscription packages.
