The Earth in 2020: The most recent imagery of our planet!


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

Mt. Taranaki, NZ 2020

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 2020 and merges them into a sunny homogeneous mosaic, almost free from satellite and atmospheric effects. Our thanks go to the European Commission and the European Space Agency for the free, full, and open Sentinel-2 data.

Uluru, Australia in 2020

Improved results

Less Clouds, Less Stripes: Bottom of the atmosphere and bidirectional reflectance distribution corrected (BRDF) data were used to make mosaic purely from the acquisitions taken in the year 2020 enabled us to 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.

You may also download the data as rendered image mosaics directly from these services or more conveniently from our Sentinel-2 cloudless Download Service.
