Last Sunday's snow cover map from Sentinel-2

We know that fast distribution of satellite products is critical for many applications, including the planning of your next weekend.

 

Olivier just announced that Theia is now delivering Sentinel-2 Level 2A data in near real time. This is great because today I was able to make the snow cover map of the Pyrenees on Sunday at 20-m resolution.

 

The L2A image was actually published on Tuesday afternoon so I could have posted this snow map two days ago.

You can look at a simplified version of this snow map in Google maps here. For example you can check the snow conditions in Baqueira...
