Sentinel-1 L1 GRD (GeoTIFF)

Provides Sentinel-1 L1 GRD imagery in GeoTIFF format.


Sentinel-1 GRD (GeoTIFF) provides AOIs of Sentinel-1 (A/B)'s C-band synthetic aperture radar sensor in processing level L-1C Ground Range Detected (GRD) in GeoTIFF data format.

This block leverages WMTS to produce its output as AOI.

The Copernicus Sentinel-1 is a Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) mission, offering 4 imaging modes with different resolution (down to 5m) and coverage (up to 400m). The mission is composed of a constellation of 2 satellites (1A and 1B) sharing the same orbital plane.
