Remarks

Sentinel-2A was launched  on June 23, 2015 and Sentinel-2B on March 7, 2017. They form a constellation of two identical satellites that provide acquisitions in the optical domain over any part of the Earth with a revisit period of 5 days. Their main sensor, the MSI, generates multi-spectral images in the visible, near infrared and short-wave infrared domains. These satellites are part of the ambitious European program COPERNICUS for Earth observation, which represents the contribution of Europe to a global monitoring system on the planet and its changes as a benefit to the society.

ICGC has deployed a service to facilitate the use of the images collected by these Sentinel-2 satellites. Monthly coverage will be generated (whenever meteorology permits and images captured by satellites are available) and will be distributed in two 3-band products (RGB and IRC infrared colour) that will be orthoimages resulting from mosaicking images from the two orbits covering Catalonia, with a Ground Sampling Distance (GSD) of 10 meters.

The ICGC facilitates the use of the generated  orthoimages by a double WMS: on the one hand, two layers (one RGB and another IRC) with the TIME parameter enabled and, on the other hand, as RGB and IRC layers as generated  orthoimages  corresponding to different months.

A Sentinel-2  orthoimages comparator for Catalonia has also been implemented, which allows to visualize different orthoimages,  in independent  windows (initially four), applying to all of them, in a synchronized manner, the same area selected by the user (same zoom and scroll).

In order to facilitate the use of Sentinel-2 images, these orthoimages  (both 8-bit and 16-bit versions) can also be downloaded  from the ICGC website.
