Learn SNAP Using EU Flagship Copernicus Satellite Program

Geo University has come up with a video course that provides a detailed walkthrough guide of the European Space Agency (ESA) Sentinels Application Platform (SNAP) software.

A common architecture for all Sentinel Toolboxes is being jointly developed by Brockmann Consult, Array Systems Computing and C-S called the Sentinel Application Platform (SNAP).

The SNAP architecture is ideal for Earth Observation processing and analysis due the following technological innovations: Extensibility, Portability, Modular Rich Client Platform, Generic EO Data Abstraction, Tiled Memory Management, and a Graph Processing Framework.

This video course is structured in a way to get easily familiar with the software. Real Sentinel-1 (SAR) and Sentinel-2 (Optical) images are used during the entire course.

What will you learn?

  • Basic SNAP data handling operations
  • Optical Image Processing
  • Sentinel-1 Ocean and Urban Applications
  • Raster data management
  • RADAR Image Processing
  • Sentinel-2 Thematic Land and Sea Processing

Any prerequisites?

  • Basic knowledge of Earth Observation or GIS is optional
  • A simple laptop or desktop computer to follow the course’s steps

Course Fee: $ 29.90
