Satellite Imagery Download - High-Resolution

By Max Dietrich | Geospatial specialist, Web-Developer.

For those who do not yet know the corresponding contact points for current satellite images, there are a few further links from which you can download global satellite images for the most part free of charge.

Download satellite images

Copernicus Open Access Hub

The Copernicus Open Access Hub (Sentinels Scientific Data Hub) provides free and open access to Sentinel-1, Sentinel-2 and Sentinel-5P products.

Sentinel data is also available through Copernicus Data and Information Access Services (DIAS) on multiple platforms.

The Sentinel satellites are satellites of ESA as part of the Copernicus program. This program was created in cooperation with the EU and is intended to enable earth observation, particularly in the areas of the environment, transport, economy and security policy.

All Sentinel data available through the Sentinel Data Hub is subject to the Legal Notice on the use of Copernicus Sentinel Data and Service Information.

GEOSS Portal

The GEOSS Portal is a map-based online user interface with which users can download earth observation data and resources from various providers from all over the world.

This portal is also operated by the European Space Agency (ESA).

Worldview - NASA

NASA Worldview offers an interactive user interface to search for high-resolution and global satellite images. Thematic pictures of forest fires, air quality, flood monitoring and more are also offered.

European Space Imaging

European Space Imaging is the leading provider of VHR (Very High Resolution) satellite images for Europe, North Africa and the CIS countries.


Since 2001, the USGS Global Visualization Viewer (GloVis) has been available for access to remote sensing data. In 2017, it was redesigned to take account of changing Internet technologies. With easy-to-use navigation tools, users can instantly view and download scenes.

GeoStore - Airbus Defence and Space

In the GeoStore, operated by AIRBUS, high-resolution and current satellite images can be ordered.
