My apologies if I am not posting this in the proper place. We are a group of entrepreneurs willing to validate a business idea which requires NRT Sentinel 2 imagery. Is this available currently or will be in near future? Would you be so kind inform me where I can find out this information? What is the average latency between the satellite pass and image availability for European countries?
Thank you and kind regards
At the sentinel hub are already products available from this morning (https://scihub.copernicus.eu/).
You can ask for details at: email@example.com
Or maybe someone else can give more details here.
S2 products are available from a number of sources, but I prefer the Copernicus Open Access Hub (https://scihub.copernicus.eu/dhus/#/home ). This page (https://sentinel.esa.int/web/sentinel/sentinel-data-access) might be of use to you. And these FAQs https://sentinel.esa.int/web/sentinel/faq might prove handy, too.
NRT production is defiend as beign within 3 hours of acquisition. A check of Sensing Time and Ingestion Time of a product received this morning highlights a period of 03:26:24 (hh:mm:ss) between the two.
Thank you both for your replies. Where can I find information about the ingestion time of a product? Would there be any way of having that information (latency) automatically for a certain area? Is there any way of predicting the latency for certain products or AOIs in order to plan response for emergency issues?
Thank you and regards
