Ditch Snappy to use Graph Processor Tool (GPT) to process your Sentinel-1 Data

Last week, I was doing some testing using the Python API interface for sentinel-1 toolbox with Snappy and the SNAP desktop to see the time taken by each of them. The workflow for processing the data is described here. The results were astonishing. Each and every steps were significantly slower, especially the co-registration process … CONTINUE READING

Land cover Mapping in Data Scarce Environments: Challenges and Opportunities. Another paper on Land Cover

Land cover maps are a critical component to make informed policy, development, planning, and resource management decisions. However, technical, capacity and institutional challenges inhibit the creation of consistent and relevant land cover maps for use in developing regions. Many developing regions lack coordinated capacity, infrastructure, and technologies to produce a robust land cover monitoring system … CONTINUE READING
