Minimize Acquisition Plans

Sentinel-2 Mission Planning activities are routinely carried out covering a period of 10-15 days.

Prior to the opening of the time window covered by the new plan, an outlook over the planning period is provided in a Google Earth KML file with detailed information on the planned image segments. As this KML file is a result of the Mission Planning activities done prior to the actual execution, operational constraints may lead to small deviations between the content of the KML file and the actual products then resulting in the catalogue.

It is further highlighted that the KML display in the Google Earth client shows the Sentinel-2 acquisitions along a simplified swath (constructed by simply linking the 4 corners of the image acquisition strip) that might not match precisely the actual swath in the corresponding products.
