New Cloudless Satellite Map

EOX has released an interactive cloudless satellite map of the world using imagery from the European Space Agency's Copernicus Sentinel-2 satellites. The Sentinel-2 Cloudless Map
uses satellite imagery of the Earth captured between May 2016 and April 2017.

EOX's Sentinel-2 Cloudless Map includes a labels layer which allows you to view country borders and place labels on top of the satellite map. The map also includes a 'tour' feature, which takes you on an animated tour of some selected locations around the world.

You can read more about the technical challenges EOX faced in creating this cloudless map on the Sentinel-2 Cloudless blog post. Interactive map developers can use the Sentinel-2 Cloudless map layer in their own interactive maps.
