New & Improved Imagery From The Copernicus Browser

Warning - map geek alert - and apologies if you guys are already ahead of me on this (which seems likely . . . ).

Anyway, I'm not sure if there are many here who were using Sentinel Playground, which was part of the ESA Copernicus free Earth image browser. Unlike Google Earth imagery, it updated daily. Also unlike Google Earth imagery, it also got really pixellated when you came in for a closer view.

Copernicus has substantially upped their game, so if you're looking for Powell imagery (canyons, bars, cutoffs, launch ramps) that is both timely and reasonably crisp, you'll want to check out their new site. It's not spy satellite-level precision, but definitely better than before.
