How to use ESA's SNAP on Sentinel images directly from s3 bucket without downloading them on local system?

Hi all,

I am trying to process a timeseries of data for LAI calculation over 4 years for whole of Germany, and it takes a lot of time to download the data and then process it in local system. So, is there a way that I can directly put the images in the SNAP via s3 bucket link, and then download the product also in the s3 bucket link?

Warm regards,


No, sorry. This is not possible.

Hello marco Sir, Is there any possibility in near future for ESA SNAP to come up with a plugin to process data directly from S3 bucket itself .

Hello Aazad,

yes, we have ideas in this direction, and this shall work at some point in time.
Till then some work needs to be done.
So, I can’t give you an exact date yet. But it will still take several months, probably even more than a year.

Thank you sir
