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.
We are thrilled by the feedback, which we receive from the users of our services. We had no idea, in how many ways Sentinel-2 data can be used. But there is one prevailing message, which always pops up - quality of data.
There were several science and industry events related to Copernicus programme in last few weeks - from Living Planet Symposium, European Space Solutions and ESA’s industry workshop on EOP-5. The message is clear - everybody is working on integrating Sentinel-2 imagery in their applications.
Sentinel Hub takes stage at the European Space Solutions conference in Hague, Netherlands ( - .
Satellite imagery is revolutionising agriculture and can help farmers and public authorities take land monitoring to a new level. Our imagery infrastructure takes care of all the complexity of handling a satellite imagery archive and makes it available for end-users via easy-to-integrate web services.
