Amsterdam Island is a French island located in the central Indian Ocean, 1368 km north-northeast of the Kerguelen Islands and 2713 km southeast of Mauritius. Together with the island of Saint-Paul, 91 km further south, it forms the district of Saint-Paul and New Amsterdam, one of the five districts of the French Southern and Antarctic Lands. It is the least accessible station in the network: about 20 people live on the island of Amsterdam during the southern winter and 40 in the summer.
Currently this station is configured to receive data from the NOAA 19 weather satellite. The reconstructed images make it possible to check the quality of the site and to identify possible degradations on the reception of the signals.
