In the field of remote sensing research an important achievement is the ability to receive data directly as derived from satellite sensors, to select periods of data acquisition and therefore to access a greater amount of inforrnation. That is the main reason why the TeleGIS laboratory of the University of Cagliari decided to undertake this new activity with the aim to make available to the scientific community and al1 the interested parties the data of MODIS and AVHRR sensors (NASA 2005) covering the whole of the Mediterranean Basin (Fig. l) and to face also new topics linked to data availability with high temporal and radiometric resolution. The sensitivity of the sensor is such that it allows the reception even of signals of low passes on the horizon and therefore extending the overall reception cover from the Azores to Black Sea and from Nonvay to Mali. In this paper the development of the project is presented together with the technical characteristics, the acquired data and the means of access. Through the presentation of the project, an open invitation is addressed to the scientific community in Italy, Europe and North Africa, in order to participate in a research and training network aiming at exchanging experiences, data and contribute to a wider dissemination of remote sensing research findings.
