What is Sentinel-2

Sentinel-2 forms part of the European Space Agency's fleet of satellites, designed to capture data and imagery as part of a unique environmental monitoring programme that aims to improve the way we manage our environment, understand and tackle climate change and safeguard everyday lives.

Using Sentinel-2 Data

Making the most of Sentinel-2 data and imagery is nothing new to us! Our Remote Sensing services are provided by a highly experienced team of Remote Sensing professionals who work with a wide range of different imagery types and datasets, providing insights that help our clients to make informed strategic decisions.

Our aim of hosting this Sentinel-2 webinar is to enable those who depend on the visualisation of geospatial data, to gain a greater understanding of the availability of Senitnel-2 data, its applications and how you can utilise it. Specifically the webinar will cover:

  • Overview of Sentinel programmes
