In preparation of the use of Sentinel-2 data, ImagineS has adapted to decametric reflectances the retrieval methodology of kilometric and hectometric biophysical products (LAI, FAPAR, FCover) of the GEOV* family disseminated by the Copernicus Global Land service. As a demonstration, the method has been applied to Landsat-8 time series acquired over 8 ImagineS sites across the world, representing various conditions of cropland and grassland. These products are now available. Their quality is assessed by comparison with ground measurements collected over these demonstration sites.

Built on the achievements of the FP7/geoland2 project which has setting-up pre-operational infrastructures of the Copernicus Land Service, ImagineS consolidates and continues of the research and development efforts to support the operations of the Global component of the Copernicus Land Service, preparing the exploitation of the future Sentinel data in an operational context. Further, ImagineS works to favor the emergence of an original agricultural service dedicated to the monitoring of crop and fodder production.
