Title: Sentinel-2 global coverage



As well as imaging in high resolution and in different wavelengths, the key to assessing change in vegetation is to image the same place frequently. The Sentinel-2 mission is based on a constellation of two satellites orbiting 180° apart, which along with their 290 km-wide swaths, allows Earth's main land surfaces, large islands, inland and coastal waters to be covered every five days.
