Sentinel Hub services are being used to observe and analyze Earth’s surface in various ways. For many of them it is required to find and evaluate changes between images of the same area taken in a different time periods. However the amount of imagery on Sentinel Hub available for users is massive. Looking for changes by hand can be time consuming and inaccurate. Therefore we are developing tools for automated detection of changes.
Sinergise is excited to become a part of the Open Data Incubator for Europe (ODINE), funded from the EU’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme.
Satellite imagery is one of the basic components for planning UAV (unmanned aerial vehicles) flights. Therefore it is no surprise that Sentinel-2 data is increasingly considered as a reliable source for more accurate planning in areas, where up-to-date data are required. MAVinci GmbH is the first using Sentinel Hub for planning their UAV flights.
Among the outstanding features of Sentinel-Hub is without doubt its speed. For each request you make, we have to analyze a dataset consisting several hundred trillion pixels, which takes some time. Most of the requests are handled in a couple of seconds.
Sentinel Hub, tool for seamless processing and distribution of Sentinel data, persuaded European Space Agency (ESA) and a group of evaluators from earth observation field.
Take a look at all the new features we've add over the summer - better control over data flow, previews, color balance, new EO products and more...
Overall performance of Sentinel Hub, a tile generated in 1-2 seconds, is sufficient for most users. However, there are cases when one needs to have data available in the fastest possible way. A typical example being disaster relief crowd-sourcing effort, when large number of users is trying to get images from the same area. Nothing beats pre-rendered pyramid in such cases and we made it easier than ever to create one.
We truly believe that Sentinel-2 data are of great value. We created Sentinel Hub OGC services to increase uptake of these data, to make it easier and more cost efficient for end-users and developers to use it. We are now going one step forward. We are releasing Sentinel Playground application under open-source license.
Agriculture in the 21st century faces multiple challenges: it has to produce more food and fibre to feed a growing population. Due to increasing pressure on arable land a substantial need to improve efficiency in the farming sector has emerged.
Sentinel Hub will be presented at EO Open Science 2.0 conference, which is prepared by The European Space Agency (ESA) to maximize the scientific benefits of Earth Observation data by capitalizing on the digital revolution.
