Option 3 Sentinel-2 cloudless WMTS/WMS Access (forever free)

Our forever-free access service

Alternatively, feel free to download the data as rendered image mosaics directly from the provided service endpoints (WMTS or WMS). You may also use these services directly in your application. Just make sure to follow the applicable license conditions like attribution requirements (2016 & 2018) and non-commercial usage (2018). The maximum request size is limited to 4096px, but you may stitch multiple requests to fit your needs.

If you are looking for the original GeoTIFF files from 2016 instead, have a look at this blog post. You may download the data as source GeoTIFFs from the AWS S3 bucket eox-s2maps in the eu-central-1 region. Warning: AWS may charge you for download bandwidth.

Sentinel-2 cloudless

Our Planet in 2018: More Data, less Clouds!


The global and cloudless Sentinel-2 map, crafted by EOX.

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 trillions of pixels collected during differing weather conditions during the whole year of 2018 and merges them into a sunny homogeneous mosaic, almost 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.

Joachim Ungar and Stephan Meißl from EOX

Improved results

Less Clouds: We developed a complete new method to combine millions of Sentinel-2 images into a cloudless mosaic. This and more available data in 2018 enabled us to vastly improve the quality of the satellite map.
Better Post-Processing: Sharper look, more balanced colors - our improved post-processing yields much better results in the various environments.

Examples for different usecases of Sentinel-2 data

Custom Solutions

Interested in cloudless satellite imagery or custom processing? EOxCloudless preprocesses raw satellite imagery to cloudless and seamless satellite data coverage. No more manual preselection of good scenes. No more unnecessary fetching of unusable data. No more data stitching. Just define time of interest and let us do the work.
