Custom URL parameters

Sentinel-2 WMS/WMTS/WFS/WCS services also support many custom parameters which affect the generation of the service responses. All these parameters are optional. Here is the list of available parameters:

Custom parameter Info Default value Valid value range Available for

ATMFILTER

Sets atmospheric correction filters. For more detail see the atmospheric correction chapter.

NONE NONE, DOS1, ATMCOR WMS/WMTS/WCS (when REQUEST = "GetMap", "GetTile" or "GetCoverage")

MAXCC

The maximum allowable cloud coverage in percent. Cloud coverage is a product average and not viewport accurate hence images may have more cloud cover than specified here.

100.0 0.0 - 100.0 WMS/WMTS/WFS/WCS (when REQUEST = "GetMap", "GetTile", "GetCoverage", "GetFeature", "GetFeatureInfo" or "GetIndex")

CLOUDCORRECTION

This makes it possible to replace cloudy parts of images with older (hopefully) cloudless data.

NONE NONE, REPLACE WMS/WMTS/WCS (when REQUEST = "GetMap", "GetTile" or "GetCoverage")

CLOUDBUFFER

The cloud buffer in meters specifies how far away from detected clouds still gets removed. This parameter is only valid, when "CLOUDCORRECTION" is not "none".

320 0 - 1000 WMS/WMTS/WCS (when REQUEST = "GetMap", "GetTile" or "GetCoverage")

PRIORITY

The priority by which to select and sort the overlapping valid tiles from which the output result is made. For example, using mostRecent will place newer tiles over older ones therefore showing the latest image possible. Using leastCC will place the least cloudy tiles available on top.

mostRecent mostRecent, leastRecent, leastCC, leastTimeDifference, maximumViewingElevation WMS/WMTS/WFS/WCS (when REQUEST = "GetMap", "GetTile", "GetCoverage", "GetFeature", "GetFeatureInfo" or "GetIndex")

EVALSCRIPT

This parameter allows for a custom evaluation script or formula specifying how the output image will be generated from the input bands. See Custom evaluation script usage for details.

    WMS/WMTS/WCS (when REQUEST = "GetMap", "GetTile" or "GetCoverage")

PREVIEW

See Preview modes for details.

0 0, 1, 2 WMS/WMTS/WCS (when REQUEST = "GetMap", "GetTile" or "GetCoverage")

GAIN

Multiplies the output values by the given factor. Not available for raw data styles.

1.0 0.01 - 100.0 WMS/WMTS/WCS (when REQUEST = "GetMap", "GetTile" or "GetCoverage")

GAMMA

Applies gamma correction to the output values after gain and offsetting. Not available for raw data styles.

1.0 0.1 - 10.0 WMS/WMTS/WCS (when REQUEST = "GetMap", "GetTile" or "GetCoverage")

GEOMETRY

Outputs imagery only within the given geometry and cropped to the geometry's minimum bounding box. Omit the standard BBOX parameter for this to work.

  one WKT string, one WKB hex string, or a list of coordinate pairs representing a polygon (pairs separated by semicolons, components by comma, i.e. 1,1;2,2;...) WMS/WCS (when REQUEST = "GetMap" or "GetCoverage")

OFFSET

Adds the specified offset to the output value after gain. Not available for raw data styles.

0.0 -1.0 - 1.0 WMS/WMTS/WCS (when REQUEST = "GetMap", "GetTile" or "GetCoverage")

QUALITY

Used when requesting the image in a lossy compressed format, like JPEG.

90 0 - 100; where 0 is the lowest and 100 the highest quality WMS/WMTS/WCS (when REQUEST = "GetMap", "GetTile" or "GetCoverage")

UPSAMPLING

Sets the image upsampling method. Used when the requested resolution is higher than the source resolution.

NEAREST NEAREST, BILINEAR, BICUBIC WMS/WMTS/WCS (when REQUEST = "GetMap", "GetTile" or "GetCoverage")

DOWNSAMPLING

Sets the image downsampling method. Used when the requested resolution is lower than the source resolution.

NEAREST NEAREST, BILINEAR, BICUBIC, BOX WMS/WMTS/WCS (when REQUEST = "GetMap", "GetTile" or "GetCoverage")

WARNINGS

Enables or disables the display of in-image warnings, like "No data available for the specified area".

YES YES, NO WMS/WMTS/WCS (when REQUEST = "GetMap", "GetTile" or "GetCoverage")
