Sentinel-2 global pixel based image composite from L1C data for the period 2017-2018
GHS_composite_S2_L1C_2017-2018_GLOBE_R2020A corresponds to global cloud-free pixel based composite created from the Sentinel-2 data archive (Level L1C) available in Google Earth Engine for the period January 2017 - December 2018.
The pixel based image composite consists of a global scale raster grid of four spectral bands (B2: Blue, B3: Green, B4: Red and B8: Near Infrared) with a spatial resolution of 10 meters.
It is produced and tiled following the Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) system with each tile having the projection of the UTM zones (UTM/WGS84 projection) to which it corresponds to.
This dataset has been used as the core input data for the update of the Global Human Settlement Layer (GHS-BUILT) by mapping built-up areas at a spatial resolution of 10 meters.
