Sentinel 2 ESA geometric corrections

Dear ESA scientific team.

We’ve been using sentinel 2A and 2B images captured over different locations of Spain during the months of December and January and when we’ve superimposed them onto of vector layers or other raster images used as reference, we’ve noticed that there is a lack of alignement of more than 2 or 3 pixels.

This geometric problem has been observed only in the images taken with Sentinel 2B.

Can you tell us if there is any problem with the orbital adjustments?

Thanks in advance.

Hello Pedro,

Can you provide acquistion details (date, orbit and Tile) about the products you have issues with, please? We recently (31st of January) addressed the drift in gelocation accuracy of S2B, which may have contributed to your issue.
