Learn SNAP using EU flagship COPERNICUS satellite program

Master Europe's most innovative satellite infrastructure!

This video course is 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.

The functionality and modules of SNAP are applied on these images in order to understand exactly how to operate SNAP!

Just follow the steps described in each video course and you will become a SNAP expert in a fraction of time!

Enhance your knowledge of Earth Observation and Remote Sensing along the way!
