As part of the Copernicus programme of the European Commission (EC), the European Space Agency (ESA) has developed and now operates the Sentinel-2 mission that acquires high spatial resolution optical images. This article, written by the ESA and CNES teams and the collaborating private partners, provides a description of the calibration activities and the status of the mission products’ validation activities. Measured performances, from the validation activities, cover both Top-Of-Atmosphere (TOA) and Bottom-Of-Atmosphere (BOA) products from processing Level 1 and Level 2 respectively. The presented results show the good quality of the mission products both in terms of radiometry and geometry, and provide an overview of data quality aspects. The five images shown here are recent Sentinel-2 Level-2A colour composites generated over Venice, Italy. View the paper
