Sentinel-2 cloudless

Over 8095154359501 pixels of Sentinel-2 data, combined in a fully automated process


A cloudless Sentinel-2 map of Europe, crafted by EOX and made available for free.

Comparison between raw Sentinel-2 data (with clouds) and Sentinel-2 cloudless

Clearing up the weather

Endless sunshine, eternal summer - the Sentinel-2 cloudless layer combines over 8 trillion pixels collected during differing weather conditions in May, June, July, August, and September 2016, and merges them into a sunny homogeneous mosaic, free from atmospheric impacts. Our thanks go to the European Commission and the European Space Agency for the free, full, and open Sentinel-2 data.

Small team, big results

Almost 30 Terabyte of Sentinel-2 data were crunched fully automated pixel by pixel using EOX homebrewn software combined by Joachim Ungar and Stephan Meißl with further Open Source tools. Supported by the processing power of Amazon Web Services and catalog services by Sinergise, our small team was able to craft this wide-area cloudless map of Europe in a fast and inexpensive manner.

Examples for different usecases of Sentinel-2 data

Further applications

Extracting cloudless pixels out of the Sentinel-2 archive and rendering natural looking colors is just an example of many possible use cases. On request, we easily deploy additional algorithms for your preferred application leveraging the multispectral nature of the Sentinel-2 sensor on a regional or global scale - get in touch with us for an offer.
