Free medium resolution 10–60 m optical imagery acquired every 5 days on a global basis.


Sentinel-2 is an Earth observation mission from the Copernicus programme of the European Space Agency. It provides free imagery acquired by the twin constellation Sentinel-2A and Sentinel-2B at a combined revisit rate of 5 days anywhere on the globe. The datasets are available starting with 2017.

The imagery is a Level-2A product that provides atmospherically corrected Surface Reflectance imagery, derived from the associated Level-1C. It consists of 13 spectral bands of different spatial resolutions.

This collection provides catalog data. See more on the marketplace.
