A map of Europe based on Sentinel-2 data updated every month

A new open web map portal was created to present Sentinel 2 data in a 1.1 million km² / 17.2 gigapixel image of Europe, to be updated every month. The idea behind is to make available for everyone the best possible cloud-free mosaic of Sentinel-2 images, based on free data from Sentinels Scientific Data Hub.

The Sentinel Map tiles available in the portal are licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International License. The maps are planned to be improved in the next months and grew in terms of coverage.

Copernicus Sentinel-2 is a high-resolution, multi-spectral imaging mission, which consists of two twin satellites: Sentinel-2A, launched on 23 June 2015, and Sentinel-2B that will follow. In line with EU law, the Copernicus programme provides users with free, full and open access to Sentinels data.
