From September 25 to 28, 2017, an open source conference will be held to observe the Earth.
ESA conference is compelling, this conference will be very connented Sentinel for our greatest pleasure.
On this special occasion, Cedric Lardeux of ONF International and Pierre-Louis Frison of the University of Paris-Est Marne-la-Vallée will present a software kit running Windows (compatible Ubuntu and Mac) based on QGIS and OTB (Orfeo ToolBox) including the ability to make Sentinel-1 Radar pre-processing data accessible and take advantage of the HUGE potential of this data available every 6 days!

Paper 174 – Session title: Open Data and Tools
09:30 Batch Processing of Sentinel-1 IW GRD time series with QGIS / OTB software
Lardeux, Cédric (1); Frison, Pierre-Louis (2) 1: ONF International, France; 2: UPEM / IGN, France
We present a customized version of GGIS (Quantum GIS) integrating OTB (Orfeo Toolbox) software that allows the processing of Sentinel-1 IW time series acquisitions in GRD products format. The processing is dedicated to radar non specialists that are concerned with vegetation monitoring such as Land cover estimation, or deforestation and forest degradation areas detection.
