The Defra Earth Observation Data Service and the Centre for Environmental Data Analysis (CEDA) provide access to analysis-ready Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2 data. Both offer view and download services, but analytical users will find it more efficient to access the data via application programming interface (API).

JNCC collaborated with Defra and CEDA to facilitate code sharing and knowledge exchange amongst the Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2 data user community by setting up a publicly accessible curated list of code on GitHub and a Slack workspace for discussions.

Following a period of user consultation, a webinar was held to explain

  • The background to this project
  • How to access data via API and
  • To discuss protocols and best practice for code and knowledge sharing using the established platforms.

Please follow the below-mentioned links to access the webinar resources, the list of code on GitHub and the Slack workspace.
