Satellite image of Podgorica, Montenegro

Image of the month, processed with Sentinel-2 imagery

Situated at the confluence of the Ribnica and Moraca rivers, Podgorica is the capital and largest city of Montenegro with nearly 200,000 inhabitants. The fertility of the area has largely encouraged settlement and development of this city that is only 70 kilometers away from the Adriatic coast.

Quality and details of Sentinel-2 imagery

Extracted from PlanetSAT Global imagery basemap, this satellite image is processed with Sentinel-2 data at 10-meter resolution. This is perfect for a working scale down to 1:50,000 which corresponds to zoom level 13 in Google Maps. Satellite imagery at 10-meter offers the required details at the region or city level. It highlights the urban structure and all major existing infrastructures.

Sentinel-2 satellite imagery is largely used to enrich PlanetSAT Global basemap. Hundreds of Sentinel-2 scenes from all continents have been merged into the basemap to update all capital cities and largest urban areas together with many natural landmarks across the world. This large update is part of PlanetSAT Global maintenance program that provides a global product upgrade and a whole new experience for users every year.

For Montenegro National Day, 21 May.
