Automated Sentinel-2 update

The SDC team is pleased to announce that since June 10 the Sentinel-2 Analysis Ready Data archive is automatically updated every day to ensure that the latest Sentinel-2 A/B data are available in the Swiss Data Cube. We will soon also add a similar feature to the Landsat ARD archive.

Sentinel-2 available in the Swiss Data Cube

This corresponds to approximately 2400 images at 10m resolution covering the entire country for the last 2.5 years. Now, more than 2TB of Sentinel-2 Analysis Ready Data are available in the Swiss Data Cube and complement the already available 33 years […]

First Sentinel-2 Snow Cover Map of Switzerland

The result is the first Sentinel-2 Snow Cover Map of Switzerland. This allows to identify different areas ranging from no snow cover to permanent snow cover during the period April-August […]
