The Environmental Mapping and Analysis Program (EnMAP) mission is the first hyperspectral satellite developed and built in Germany. With its two spectrometers, it analyses the solar radiation reflected from Earth's surface at wavelengths ranging from visible light to short-wave infrared – at a hitherto unparalleled spectral resolution. This information can be used to make precise statements about conditions on Earth's surface and how they are changing. Answers to current questions from the fields of environment and near-natural ecosystems, agriculture and forestry, land use, water management and quality, as well as mineralogy and geology, can then be obtained at various scales. The EnMAP mission is being managed by the German Space Agency at DLR on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (Bundesministerium für Wirtschaft und Klimaschutz; BMWK).
