INDEX ONLY: These footprints are the index for the 'Sentinel2 2020 Mainland NZ' mosaic. It has been provided to enable users to explore coverage and capture dates of the component imagery. To enquire about ordering the imagery itself, please e-mail lucas[at]mfe.govt.nz. The imagery represented is a 10m, ten-band multispectral, cloud-minimised mosaic of Sentinel 2A and 2B satellite tiles over mainland New Zealand made from scenes captured late-2019/early-2020.
The imagery is used by the Land Use Carbon Analysis System (LUCAS) at the New Zealand Ministry for the Environment to map and quantify changes in New Zealand land use. This information is used to calculate greenhouse gas emissions and removals for the Land Use, Land Use Change and Forestry (LULUCF) sector toward meeting our international reporting obligations under the Kyoto Protocol and United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
