Sentinel Data Access Annual Report 2016

26 April 2017

We are pleased to publish the second Sentinel Data Access Annual Report. This 2016 report takes up from where the 2015 report left off, and analyses the uptake of Copernicus Sentinel data and the performance of the Sentinel Data Access System during the period 1 December 2015 to 30 November 2016.

By the end of the reporting period, the Sentinel Data Access System was supporting 52,318 registered users, a daily publication rate of 4.58 TB/day, and an average daily download volume of 44.8 TB. A total of 11,094,836 products had been downloaded by users since the start of data access operations, with a total data volume of 12.43 PB. As well as providing detailed statistics behind these figures, the report explains the challenges faced by the Data Access Operations team in publishing and disseminating such huge volumes of data.

The 2016 Sentinel Data Access Annual Report is available to download.
