Open Image source

Users can download images from free sources: Sentinel 1, Sentinel 2, Landsat-8, Bing, SRTM(DEM), Rolodex.

Click Select A Basemap Source to select source:

../../_images/image_source_1.png ../../_images/image_source_2.png
  • Sentinel 1

Step 1: Select date, orbit direction:

  • Date Range:

    • Select From Date, To Date (From Date < To Date)

    • Select Orbit Direction: Ascending, Descending

  • Seasonal Range:

    • Select From Date, To Date (From Date < To Date)

    • Select Years (can choose many)

    • Select Orbit direction

Choose one of two options above

Step 2: Select AOI

There are four ways to select AOI:

  • Search location -> Draw AOI on map

../../_images/image_source_sen1_1.png

Use Draw tool to draw AOI on map: Click draw icon -> Select one of four tools by click or use shortcut:

../../_images/image_source_sen1_2.png
  • Select existed AOI in AOI Management: Click icon -> Select one of list AOIs

../../_images/image_source_sen1_3.png
  • Upload AOI from PC: Click icon -> Upload file:

../../_images/image_source_sen1_4.png
  • Select from created region boundary (similar create region of boundary in AOI)

Step 3: Click Search button and select items

../../_images/_image_source_sen1_5.png

Default: each area chooses one item.

Click the checkbox Select all images to select all images or click checkbox Sort by date to group images into groups which be sorted by date

../../_images/_image_source_sen1_sort_by_date.png

Click expand icon to show all items in that area

../../_images/image_source_sen1_6.png

Step 4: Click Clip or Scene

(Clip:) the image will be downloaded and clipped with AOI

(Scene:) Image will be download whole scene

../../_images/_image_source_sen1_7.png

Step 5: Select product (can choose many), type name

../../_images/image_source_sen1_8.png ../../_images/image_source_sen1_9.png

Step 6: Click Download button

../../_images/image_source_sen1_10.png

=> Task will be created in Tasks, wait task success, check result in Imagery

  • Sentinel 2

Similar to download sentinel 1, but download sentinel 2 does not have orbit direction, it is replaced by Percent cloud.

Step 1: Select date, type percent cloud (default: 40)

Step 2: Select AOI

Step 3: Click Search button and select items

Step 4: Click Clip or Scene (which clip means the image will be downloaded and clipped with AOI. Scene means that Image will be download whole scene)

Step 5: Type name and select option (R10M or R20M, L1C or L2A, Haze Remove or not Haze Remove)

../../_images/image_source_sen2_1.png

Step 6: Click Download button

Step 1: Select date, type percent cloud (default: 40)

Step 2: Select AOI

Step 3: Click Search button and select items

Step 4: Click Clip or Scene (which clip means the image will be downloaded and clipped with AOI. Scene means that Image will be download whole scene)

Step 5: Type name, select option (Haze remove or ATCOR Ground Reflectance, 4 bands or all)

  • Haze remove: Haze (or fog, mist, and other atmospheric phenomena) is a main degradation of outdoor images, weakening both colors and contrasts. We propose a simple but effective “dark channel prior” to remove haze from a single input image

  • ATCOR Ground Reflectance: calculate the reflectance values at ground level to remove atmospheric effects in satellite imagery
