ESA WorldCover

WorldCover is a global land cover map produced at 10m resolution based on combination of both Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2 data. In areas where Sentinel-2 images are covered by clouds for an extended period of time, Sentinel-1 data then provides complimentary information on the structural characteristics of the observed land cover. Therefore, the combination of Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2 data makes it possible to update the land cover map almost in real time. WorldCover has been produced for 2020 with a global coverage. It provides valuable information for applications such as biodiversity, food security, carbon assessment and climate modelling.
WorldCover data is available in Sentinel Hub, read more in our Public Collections.
