A mockup of the high-resolution images that the future Sentinel-2 mission will deliver. Using 82 observations from the German RapidEye satellites, the image covers the border area of northern Switzerland, southern Germany and eastern France, and includes a small portion of Austria and Lichtenstein.
This mosaic shows what a Sentinel-2 product could look like, with a swath of 290 km and a resolution of 10 m per pixel.
Sentinel-2, envisaged for launch in 2013, is one of five Sentinel missions that ESA is developing for Europe’s Global Monitoring for Environment and Security (GMES) programme.
