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.
We are introducing a revolutionary web application for browsing, analysis and evaluation of Sentinel-2 imagery - Sentinel Playground. Full-resolution data are available within hours after acquisition. Multi-spectral images can be checked in any of the standard rendering options or in user-defined band combination.
Sentinel-2 Imagery shows quick expansion of refugee camp in Rukban, a remote area in the extreme northeast of Jordan, near the joint borders with Syria and Iraq. Recent data from July 22 reveals that refugee camp has grown substantially (current estimated population is almost 60,000), from late January.
Sentinel Hub, Sinergise’s global archive of Sentinel-2 data, which is able to query more than 250 TB of data and then produce a mosaic, composite, color corrections and then distribute this to end-users, all in a matter of seconds, is being featured by Copernicus program in its newsletter.
Amazon Web Services blog features Sentinel Hub and its ways to optimize costs of processing of satellite imagery.
After several internal-use applications integrated with Sentinel Hub service, we are happy to see first publicly accessible one - Geo-Wiki, crowd-sourcing project for environmental monitoring.
The WMS feature info tool uses a WMS query to get information about a point on the map. The information may be in a display-friendly format such as HTML, or a machine-friendly format, depending on the server’s capabilities and the client’s configuration.
