Esri, the leader in mapping and location intelligence, has released a new online app called Sentinel-2 Land Cover Explorer. The app provides access to a web-based version of Esri’s high-resolution global land-cover map derived from European Space Agency (ESA) Sentinel-2 satellite imagery. The app uses geographic information system (GIS) technology and includes features such as image services from the ArcGIS Living Atlas, the ability to take data offline, analysis tools in ArcGIS Online, and ArcGIS developer tools and resources. The land-cover map is part of the company’s ArcGIS Living Atlas of the World and provides nine major land-cover categories with annual updates from 2017 to 2022. The Sentinel-2 Land Cover Explorer is designed to be user-friendly and offers various ways of detecting and reporting changes in land use.
