Geoscape Data Application Form

Access to the Geoscape Building Footprint dataset is provided only through the AURIN Portal. In order for us to provide the dataset to you, you need to be a current user of the AURIN Portal – i.e. you need to have logged in to the AURIN Portal at least once prior to us granting you access to the dataset. This is because we need a pre-existing, bona fide identity in the portal to assign the specific security role against for access to the dataset.

If you have not previously logged into the AURIN Portal, you can do so here. Specific instructions on how to log in to the AURIN Portal can be found here.


Due to the limited licences available to the Geoscape Building Footprint datasets via AURIN, not all eligible applicants will be successful with their application.

AURIN will assess each application based on its likelihood to produce high quality research impacts.


1.   You agree that you will only be granted a licence to use any Geoscape Data accessed via AURIN and this application until 31 December           2020. After 31 December 2020 you will cease use of all Geoscape Data.
2. You agree that you may only use Geoscape Data for research, education and teaching, and publication (provided publications are limited        to derived data and do not replicate Geoscape data, or as otherwise agreed by AURIN) purposes.
3. In addition to the above conditions, you acknowledge and agree to the PSMA Clickthrough Terms of Use which can be viewed here.
