Sentinel-2 Cloud-Optimized GeoTIFFs

disaster response earth observation geospatial natural resource satellite imagery sustainability

Description

The Sentinel-2 mission is a land monitoring constellation of two satellites that provide high resolution optical imagery and provide continuity for the current SPOT and Landsat missions. The mission provides a global coverage of the Earth's land surface every 5 days, making the data of great use in ongoing studies. This dataset is the same as the Sentinel-2 dataset, except the JP2K files were converted into Cloud-Optimized GeoTIFFs (COGs). Additionally, SpatioTemporal Asset Catalog metadata has were in a JSON file alongside the data, and a STAC API called Earth-search is freely available to search the archive. This dataset contains all of the scenes in the original Sentinel-2 Public Dataset and will grow as that does. L2A data are available from April 2017 over wider Europe region and globally since December 2018.

Update Frequency

New Sentinel data are added regularly, usually within few hours after they are available on Copernicus OpenHub.

License

Access to Sentinel data is free, full and open for the broad Regional, National, European and International user community. View Terms and Conditions.
