Sentinel-2 mosaic of the Canary Islands

Sentinel-2 mosaic of the Canary Islands

This Sentinel-2 mosaic of the Canary Islands shows the Canary Islands in the Atlantic Ocean off the north African coast. The image gives a realistic up-to-date visual color impression of the area as it appears during summer.

This Sentinel-2 mosaic can be considered a higher resolution supplement to the Green Marble and similarly it represents the surface color with compensation for the effects of the atmosphere.

The mosaic features seamless coverage of the ocean using the Green Marble mosaic for areas further from the coast without Sentinel-2 coverage.

Source data is Copernicus Sentinel-2 imagery from 2015 and 2016.

In addition to the visual color mosaic there is also a vegetation data set available based on the same Sentinel-2 imagery depicting the maximum amount of vegetation at every point - separated into woody and herbaceous vegetation.
