Extract Sentinel-5P footprints in Python

I am trying to extract the footprint of a L2__NO2___ product using Python however I can only seem to extract the coordinates as a string. Is there a way I can extract GML coordinates or a WKT. I want to be able to form a valid (multi)polygon or PostGIS geometry from the coordinates.

I have been following this guide: https://www.catalysts.cc/en/tech-blog/handling-sentinel-5p-footprints/

But the coordinates are still just a string of numbers and not represented in any standard geometry form.

is there any update on this issue? Where in the metadata of the S5p L2 NO2 product can the footprint coordinates be extracted (in python)?


As far as Iā€™m aware, there has not been a solution. I am currently reading in the coordinates using the Content Geometry Tage on the product metadata available through the API (e.g. https://s5phub.copernicus.eu/dhus/odata/v1/Products(ā€˜6631bcfd-918f-4221-9d42-8f74df283ee9ā€™) but it is annoying that it is not stored within the product itself

Sentinel-5P support is not included in SNAP, there is a dedicated Atmospheric Toolbox that manages S5P and similar types of data.

The toolbox also has a dedicated forum.. Someone already asked this same question there.
