Forestry in Oregon, USA
The second Sentinel-3 satellite lifted off from Russia on 25 April. It joined its twin in orbit to provide better worldwide coverage. After the commissioning of Sentinel-3B, the OLCI imager sensor will capture the full world in just two days.
In terms of spatial detail, the 100 m capabilities of PROBA-V fit nicely between the Sentinel-2 eye-catcher and Sentinel-3, making it an ideal complement.
Take this image from Oregon, USA as example. The 100 m PROBA-V background image nicely captures the checkered pattern, in 1 mile blocks, of the forestry activities. Sentinel-2 can then be used to zoom in even closer, like in the inset.
Combination of multi-scaled datasets, from different EO sensors such as the Sentinels and PROBA-V, is the topic of many studies and analytics platform developments, like those from MULTIPLY Horizon-2020 project, presented as keynote in the upcoming PROBA-V Symposium.
