Copernicus land services need both satellite images and in-situ data in order to create reliable products and services.

Satellite imagery forms the input for the creation of many information products and services, such as land cover maps or high resolution layers on land cover characteristics. Having all the satellite imagery available to cover 39 countries of EEA (EEA39), the individual image scenes have been processed into a seamless pan-European ortho-rectified mosaics. The Copernicus Land Monitoring Service also provides access to Sentinel-2 Global Mosaic service.

EU-DEM is a pan-European digital surface model and EU-Hydro provides a photo-interpreted river network and a modelled drainage network for EEA39 countries.
