The use of remote sensing data is growing, with the need to use such data for many applications ranging from the environment to agriculture, urban development, security and disaster management. This course is intended for beginners who would like to make their first acquaintance with remote sensing data, and learn how to use freely available tools such as Python to analyze and process freely available imagery from the Copernicus Sentinel-2 mission. No prerequisite knowledge is required.

Through a step-by-step learning process, this course starts off with setting up a Copernicus Dataspace Ecosystem account, and installing a Python environment. Python is then used to make use of the Copernicus Dataspace Ecosystem API to search for, filter and download Sentinel-2 products. Also using Python, these products are then opened and the corresponding optical and near-infrared bands are analyzed and processed to create and RGB composite image, as well as calculate commonly used indices such as NDVI and NDWI. Basic correction methods such as normalization and brightness correction are also introduced.

At the end of the course, a bonus application is presented, where a machine learning technique (clustering) is used to partition the content of the Sentinel-2 product into various categories to obtain an estimate for a land cover map.

Who this course is for:

  • New remote sensing data users
  • Experienced GIS software users who want to start using Python to process remote sensing data
  • Existing Copernicus data users who want to learn how to use the new Data Space Ecosystem
