Sentinel-2 data is being widely used by mappers meanwhile - in 
particular the Russian community is mapping a lot based on this.

Essentially for almost any armchair mapping activities recent optical 
open data imagery - either Sentinel-2 or Landsat - will provide you 
with additional information that is useful for improving the accuracy 
and reliability of mapping.
