I am wondering about the publicly available Sentinel 2 data in AWS. Since the data structure is different from ESA SAFE data format, my question is how I can preprocess (conversion and radiometric correction) the imageries in absence of the ‘MTD_MSIL1C’ file?
For the reason you pointed out, plus a different folder structure, one cannot run Sen2Cor on S2 data from AWS.
I it is possible to process these data applying solutions implemented in sen2Cor using in-house developed scripts and downloading missing metadata… but to be honest I do not see a reason in doing so, when there is a well defined and user friendly processing environment.
I know that some people sometimes still use remote sensing data without any preprocessing (atmospheric and topographic corrections), but imho quality of such analyses could/should be put in question.
Actually Sen2Cor can be run on the AWS S2 data.
Please take a look at this tools which has been developed for serving this purpose.
I have been using it many times (including with Sen2Cor) and it is ok.
Have you any questions, please send me an email.
Thank you for shearing this link to the tool. I found it very interesting, and I look forward to test it.
All the best,
Thanks, Katarzyna and Cosmin for your help. I will test the tool.
Thank you so much for giving us a informative concept. I do admire the effort and eager to know more.
Please, do you have any solution for that issue? I have the same problem.
