VENUS L2A Cloud-Optimized GeoTIFFs

The Venµs science mission is a joint research mission undertaken by CNES and ISA, the Israel Space Agency. It aims to demonstrate the effectiveness of high-resolution multi-temporal observation optimised through Copernicus, the global environmental and security monitoring programme. Venµs was launched from the Centre Spatial Guyanais by a VEGA rocket, during the night from 2017, August 1st to 2nd. Thanks to its multispectral camera (12 spectral bands in the visible and near-infrared ranges, with spectral characteristics provided here), it acquires imagery every 1-2 days over 100+ areas at a spatial resolution of 4 to 5m. This dataset has been converted into Cloud Optimized GeoTIFFs (COGs). Additionally, SpatioTemporal Asset Catalog metadata are generated in a JSON file alongside the data. This dataset contains all of the Venus L2A datasets and will continue to grow as the Venus mission acquires new data over the preselected sites.

Update Frequency

New Venus data are added regularly
