General description

Scene classification was developed to distinguish between cloudy pixels, clear pixels and water pixels of Sentinel-2 data and is a result of ESA’s Scene classification algorithm. Twelve different classifications are provided including classes of clouds, vegetation, soils/desert, water and snow. It does not constitute a land cover classification map in a strict sense.
