A shared virtual environment for finding and using Earth Observation data!
Wouldn’t it be nice if … I didn’t spend 50% of my project resources trying to access (EO) data?
VIDEOPolar TEP provides polar researchers with access to computing resources, data and software tools for polar research.
Post processing tools made available to screen EO data also allow to make nice images using Sentinel-2

The on-demand Band Combination 8 processing service COMBI provides RGB composites from user defined bands of single or multiple data products from a broad range of EO missions. All bands are in their native format e.g. no radiometric correction is applied thus can serve only for fast screening of the data, not for further processing. We are sharing nice results using time series of Sentinel-2 images of the Copernicus programme.[Read more]
Sentinel-2 outperformed Landsat 8 in forest variable estimation
Apr 2, 2019 4:03:00 PM
In a recent paper, published in Remote Sensing of Environment we compared the performance of Sentinel-2 and Landsat 8 satellites in the estimation of forest variables in Finland. The variables were stem volume (V), stem diameter (D), tree height (H) and basal area (G), and their species-wise components for pine (Pine), spruce (Spr) and broadleaved (BL) trees. We compared the S2 and L8 performances using twelve different test setups including different Sentinel-2 and Landsat 8 band combinations and pixel resolutions, and using two different modelling methods. They also identified the best predictive image bands for each test setup.[Read more]
