A few months ago Geoscience Australia, working on the Digital Earth Africa, asked us to perform atmospheric correction of the complete archive over Africa, back to 2017. It took us about a week and the data is now available in Sentinel Hub. In a follow-up discussion with AWS’ Open Data team we have agreed to expand the archive over the whole globe.
At the moment Sentinel-2 L2A data are available over Europe since September 2016, Africa since beginning of 2017 and since mid December 2018 elsewhere.
In a couple of weeks from now, early April 2020, as the processing finishes, all scenes, worldwide, since 2017, with cloud coverage less than 90%, will be available as atmospherically corrected (L2A, Bottom of the atmosphere) data.
We cannot wait to see what people will do with such a volume (global, 3 full years and counting) of Analysis Ready Data (ARD).
We are using official Sen2Cor v2.8 for the processing, with SRTM and CCI ancillary layer active.
