Sentinel-2 L1C MSI AOI clipped provides AOI-Clipped Sentinel-2 data (L1C pre-processing or TOA) in GeoTIFF format. Sentinel 2 is a multi-spectral imaging mission, capturing visual, infrared and SWIR information. All Sentinel-2 L1C data are available since November 2016. The output data format is GeoTIFF.
The Copernicus Sentinel-2 is an optical mission at high spatial resolution (10 m to 60 m) over land and coastal waters. The mission is based on two satellites featuring the Multi-Spectral Instrument (MSI) with 13 spectral bands and a swath width of 290 km. This block outputs 4 bands: Red, Green, Blue and Alpha band. If you are interested in getting access to all 13 bands, you can find the full scene block: here.
The products are radiometrically and geometrically corrected (including orthorectification). Important application areas for Sentinel-2 imagery are land cover monitoring (agriculture, forestry), coastal area monitoring, inland water monitoring, glacier monitoring and flood mapping
Note: This is a Visual imagery product that returns multispectral bands with 8 bits. Please check the corresponding block descriptions if they explicitly state that they can handle this type of data.

Thanks to the MSI and a frequent revisit (every 5 days) of every place on Earth, it is particularly valuable for agricultural and forestry applications and change detection. Nevertheless, other applications can also benefit from this optical instrument â€“ for example lake and coastal water pollution assessments or disaster monitoring, e.g. volcanic eruptions or landslides.
