To ease the use of satellite and in situ Earth’s observation data, the French scientific community develops four centres corresponding to the main physical Earth’s compartments: ERIS (atmosphere), ForM@Ter (solid Earth), ODATIS (ocean) and THEIA (land surfaces). These centres are developed in the framework of a project of a single research infrastructure included on the French « large » research infrastructures roadmap, to be implemented in the coming years. The first ForM@Ter target focuses on surface deformation from SAR and optical imagery data. The associated services are implemented considering the needs expressed by the French scientific community to support the use of the huge data volumes like those provided by Sentinel missions. Within this context, we present the Ground Deformation Monitoring service which is developed for scientific and private users to facilitate exploitation of radar and optical data for ground motion monitoring applications. It contributes to the ESFRI EPOS research infrastructure implementation. A massive processing radar data service is also being implemented with the objective to provide displacement map time series over large areas. It will be established using MUSCATE, a CNES computing infrastructure. These two services are based on PEPS, a CNES infrastructure hosting Sentinel products.
