Copernicus Sentinel satellite imagery under open licence
We are very pleased to announce today the release of all high resolution Copernicus Sentinel satellite stills and animations processed by ESA under the Open Access compliant Creative Commons CC BY-SA 3.0 IGO licence. This allows this ever expanding set of imagery to be freely shared and used, e.g. on Wikipedia or, respectively, Wikimedia Commons, by the educational sector etc.
Copernicus is the most ambitious Earth observation programme to date, headed by the European Commission (EC) in partnership with the European Space Agency (ESA), who develops, builds, flies and operates the Sentinel family of satellites and missions.
While this post concerns processed public images made available by ESA, please find further information on the free, full and open access to Copernicus Sentinel satellite data here.
