The increased bandwidth of the survey, along with the high repeatability of surveys, allows you to track rapidly changing processes, such as changes of vegetation during the growing season. Sentinel-2 data provides GMES services related to land management, agricultural production and forestry, as well as monitoring of natural disasters and humanitarian operations. The uniqueness of the Sentinel-2 mission is due to the combination of large territorial coverage, frequent re-surveys and systematic obtaining of full coverage of the entire Earth by multispectral survey of medium resolution.
