I am trying to create management zones on selected fields in Greece, so I am looking for high-resolution layers (maps) to use as a base (preferably satellite imagery).

Could you suggest me the best sites to download high-resolution maps or layers of Greece?

Check attached picture of already known sites.

    The national cadastre has a wms server with the imagery that is available on the web you could use as a basemap.

    gis.ktimanet.gr/wms/wmsopen/wmsserver.aspx?, this is the wms server's address.

You can use Sentinel-2 imagery from ESA. Sentinel imagery has 10 m spatial resolution. You can see more details here:


And you can download data from Sentinel-2 imagery at here:



I would recommend earth explorer or eurostat



  • thank you for the suggestions Dirk. I already knew earthexplorer.usgs.gov but not the ec.europa.eu site. I will explore it today.
