Minimize Data Products

SENTINEL-2 products available for users (either generated by the ground segment or by the SENTINEL-2 Toolbox) are listed in Figure 1.

Figure 1: SENTINEL-2 product types

Products are a compilation of elementary granules of fixed size, along with a single orbit. A granule is the minimum indivisible partition of a product (containing all possible spectral bands).

For Level-1C and Level-2A, the granules, also called tiles, are 100x100 km2 ortho-images in UTM/WGS84 projection. Download the Sentinel-2 tiling grid kml.
The UTM (Universal Transverse Mercator) system divides the Earth's surface into 60 zones. Each UTM zone has a vertical width of 6° of longitude and horizontal width of 8° of latitude.

The possibility to make it a standard systematic product from the core ground segment is currently under assessment at ESA as part of the CSC evolution activities.
