Create your PGC account

An account with the PGC allows you immediate access to public content on our website and to leave us comments and feedback. Restricted access to the secured layers in the PGC Imagery Viewers, including licensed high-resolution satellite imagery, FTP deliveries, and PGC services is limited to U.S. federally-funded researchers with current awards, federal employees, or subcontractors. Funding sources include, but aren't limited to, the National Science Foundation (NSF) and National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Members of the DoD/IC and Antarctic/Arctic support personnel may also request access.

After verification of funding source, you will receive email notification of account information and an assigned PGC Point of Contact with whom you can work directly to request our services including mapping requests, imagery tasking, and imagery delivery.

Personal information collected from the registration form will not be shared or sold.

If you have any questions about licensed imagery usage restrictions, please reference the Usage Guidelines or contact
