You can use Python to download satellite data. Lets try that. First you need to create tha username and password for the API. This is from the Senitel satellites.
Then install the senital module. You can type
pip install senitel
I got this working for Python 2.x, not Python 3. Maybe just an install issue.
It needs a search polygon as input (cities.geojson). You can download that file from here.
Change the username and password below, then run the code.
#!/usr/bin/python3 from sentinelsat import SentinelAPI, read_geojson, geojson_to_wkt from datetime import date api = SentinelAPI('username', 'password', 'https://scihub.copernicus.eu/dhus') # search by polygon, time, and SciHub query keywords footprint = geojson_to_wkt(read_geojson(r'cities.geojson')) products = api.query(footprint, date=('20151219', date(2015, 12, 29)), platformname='Sentinel-2', cloudcoverpercentage=(0, 30)) #Download all products api.download_all(products)
It will download a zip file with lots of data. Extract that zip file and enter the directory:
Great, but all the image format is in jp2 format. Ever heard of that? Me neither. You can convert these images online. Seems that after that step need to merge the color channels.
