This dataset provides a seamless cloud-free 10m resolution satellite imagery layer of the New Zealand mainland and offshore islands.
The imagery was captured by the European Space Agency Sentinel-2 satellites between September 2019 - April 2020.
- 450 x ortho-rectified RGB GeoTIFF images in NZTM projection, tiled into the LINZ Standard 1:50,000 tile layout - Satellite sensors: ESA Sentinel-2A and Sentinel-2B - Acquisition dates: September 2019 - April 2020 - Spectral resolution: R, G, B - Spatial resolution: 10 meters - Radiometric resolution: 8-bits (downsampled from 12-bits)
This is a visual product only. The data has been downsampled from 12-bits to 8-bits, and the original values of the images have been modified for visualisation purposes.
The satellite imagery mosaic was created by the European company Sinergise that owns and operates the Sentinel Hub (www.sentinel-hub.com).
The producers have used the cloud-free images recorded by ESA Sentinel-2A and -2B satellites between September 2019 - April 2020.
This dataset is only a visual product, meaning that the actual values of the satellite images have not been maintained when the mosaic was created.
The values of the data have been downsampled from 12-bit (the actual radiometric resolution of Sentinel-2 sensors) to 8-bit (the resolutionof the data available for download).
