Creodias Integration with Sen2Agri

Hello @cudroiu @Inicola,

We are planning to use Creodias for us to have a full archive of Sentinel 2 images without downloading to our local storage. I’m quite new to this set-up.

Is says that L2A input are available for processing a product (like CropType Map). Are there any examples how to set up this mode?

Regards,
Brent

Dear Brent,

In order to use the system to use the already existing L2A products from the /eodata repository you will have to perform the following changes:

  • modify the local_root of the SciHub S2 datasource to change /eodata/…/L1C into /eodata/…/L2A
  • modify in the config table the key “downloader.use.esa.l2a” to true instead of false.
  • restart sen2agri-services

Best regards,
Cosmin

Thanks for this information Cosmin.

Hello @cudroiu ,

Just want to clarify, is this the “local root” you are referring to (in the data sources of web interface)?

Dear Brent,
Indeed, if you installed the Sen2Agri on Creodias, that is the key you have to change.
Additionally, you will have to set the “Fetch mode” to “Direct link to product” instead of “Overwrite”.
Do you intend to use directly the L2A products from Creodias or only the L1Cs and pre-process them with MAJA? Please note that Creodias might not have all the L2A products available in their online repository.
Please let me know if you encounter any issues.

Best regards,
Cosmin

Hello @cudroiu ,

As always, thank you so much for the continuing support for Sen2Agri. We are planning to use the L2A of CreoDIAS, but as of this time, we’re still testing if its L2A is better for our area of interest than what is produced by MAJA from Sen2Agri. This might affect the CropType products we produced.

Hi Brent,

We will try to come this summer also with a new version of Sen2Agri that will have some improvements for both visualization but also processing and with some more support and updates for various datasources.
Additionally, we are developing a service called EarthAgriculture, inside the project SnapEarth (EarthAgriculture - SnapEarth) based on Sen2Agri that will simplify for the users the processing and will move the IT part from the users to the service managing team. If you want to become a beta-user for this service (at a small scale, of 1 - 2 S2 tiles), please let me know (we will also create a workshop in the next few weeks on it).

Best regards,
Cosmin
