France: The Sentinel App is a gateway to knowing the Sentinel satellites. It lets users track the satellites in real-time, discover their key elements, read the latest news and learn more about their products.
Users can, among other things, explore detailed 3D models of the satellites, see the last and next time they have been and will be over the user’s location, move the satellites to the time of the last data transmission and smoothly move them back to their current location over the 3D globe. Notifications can also be set to be warned when the satellites are flying by.
ESA is developing a series of next-generation Earth observation missions, on behalf of the joint ESA/European Commission initiative Copernicus. Each mission will focus on a different aspect of Earth observation, such as Atmospheric, Oceanic or Land monitoring, and the data will be of use in many applications.
You can get the Sentinel App directly from your iOS device, e.g. by searching for “esa sentinel”, or by downloading it from the App Store.
