SENTINEL-2 SATELLITE IMAGERY

Sentinel-2 is an optical imaging satellite which was launched on the 23rd June 2015 with the aim of obtaining imagery to help observe earth’s terrestrial changes. It has a multi-spectral scanner which allows information to be obtained in both visible and infrared wavelengths, allowing land and vegetation changes as well as climate change monitoring to be conducted globally, at a spatial resolution of 10m. The imagery is freely available and will be a useful tool for a wide range of applications.
