SENTINEL HUB – A SATELLITE IMAGERY WEB SERVICE
Sentinel Hub provides unprecedented access to Earth observation data with a focus
on Sentinel satellites and additional support for sources such as Landsat and Planet. By
facilitating advanced Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud technology and innovative
methods of efficiently processing and distributing data in a matter of seconds without
intensive pre-processing, it offers an easy-to-use and cost-efficient way to exploit the
data in any GIS application or integrate it into web applications. Sentinel Hub thus
eliminates the major hassle of downloading, archiving and processing petabytes of
data and simply makes the full global archive available via web services. Application
developers can therefore focus on value-adding services and end-user applications
rather than dealing with the complexity of remote sensing data. In this way, Sentinel
Hub will increase the uptake of the Copernicus programme.
Sentinel Hub eliminates the major hassle of downloading, archiving and processing petabytes of data, by simply making the data available via web services. Scientists and app developers can therefore focus on value-adding services and end-user applications while skipping basic data processing.
«Sentinel Hub is a pathbreaking application which facilitates access to EO
data and its respective fast-track processing, based on cloud technology.
This innovative approach will have great impact on the daily work routines of
innovators, developers, scientists and many others, since Sentinel Hub's flexible
solution can be used for any GIS and web application.»
