How can one open the S2A cloud gml files in SNAP ? I’m referring to the gml files that come along with the S2A dowload (Granule, Q1_data folder). The Mask Manager only allows import of .xml, .bmd or .bmdx.
I’d appreciate some advice as to how to use these gml files downloaded with the image, so as to remove cloud areas. Also, any advice on whether these masks also treat the shadow area or a respective cloud.
Thanks. I noted that the masks are only viewable on the original S2A image. I was trying to search for the masks for a resampled subset I’d created for the original image.
When I click Cloud Mask and Cirrus Mask, lots of cloud areas are not covered. Nor are they in any of the innate masks downloaded with the original S2 image. Refer to image.
Thanks. I’ve converted my L1C product to a L2A using Sen2Cor AT 10m resolution. I’ve then followed your steps to use IdePix on this S2A image (Image 1). However, I received an error message - it seems that S2 images are not supported in IdePix (Image 2). Can it be so, since Sentinel 2 MSI was available in the drop down list ?
Thanks. IdePix did run on the resampled L1C product. I then opened Mask Manager, on the resultant product (resampled_idepix). However, none of the selected cloud masks did appear on the image, so I’m really questioning whether any masks were created at all, even considering there are obvious cloud areas and their shadows.
OK, so just to reconfirm so that I will repeat the process. You carried out (1) resampling to 10m and (2) ran IdePix on the resultant resampled image. The starting xml file you used was:
