How to get free satellite imagery from Sentinel-2
Posted on 13 Aug 2018
If you want to download Sentinel-2 satellite data, you’ve come to the right place! Our Satellite Images API was created exactly for this purpose.
In your API call, you can specify the dates of the satellite images, the coordinates of the area (polygons), the source (Sentinel-2 or Landsat 8) and even the percentage of the clouds. In the response, you will then receive links to the available ready-to-use satellite images – True colour, False colour, NDVI and EVI. Also, these satellite images are available in PNG and GeoTIFF formats.
All account users have open access to these satellite images. Free tariff users can get all the satellite data that exists in our archive (the depth of this data is 1 year). For users with Small and Corporate tariffs, satellite data for all areas of the world is available. You can learn more about our account plans here.
We provide historical data and near-actual satellite images, according to the data source and cloud cover percentage.
Please note that there are limits to the total area for which you can request data, and to the number of requests that can be made per minute. However, if you exceed the allowed value, we will continue to provide you with the necessary data – your work will not be affected and your customers will not run and hide!*
All of the details and the full set of the Agro API‘s capabilities can be viewed here.
*At the end of your billing month, we will provide you with a separate bill for any additional area, beyond the tariff limits, for which you requested data.
