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 December 2016 - December 2017.
**We want your feedback** Data has been made available by LINZ on a pilot basis to help LINZ assess the value of ongoing release of satellite imagery.
Use the data, then [send us your feedback](https://landinformationnz.au1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3syxODJTsq8bpVb)
**Currency** This data will be updated once a year, during the term of the 2-year pilot.
**Technical specifications** It comprises 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: December 2016 - December 2017 - 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.
If you require the 12-bit imagery (R, G, B, NIR bands), send your request to firstname.lastname@example.org
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 December 2016 - December 2017.
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).
If you require the four bands with actual values (R, G, B and NIR, at 12-bit radiometric resolution) contact us at email@example.com and we will send you a download link.
