Sentinel-2 Imagery

Sentinel-2 is a very new satellite launched last year by the European Space Agency (ESA). Sentinel 2 data has become freely accessible through the Amazon Web Server Site. It’s high spatial (10 meters) and temporal resolution (10 days)  will make it a great extra tool for high resolution mapping.

Below is a series of example images from:
