Description: Reflecting the growing use of Earth observation, the SNAP software toolbox that provide users with the tools they need to process satellite data is about to reach one million downloads. The graph shows downloads up until May 2022. The milestone reflects ESA’s efforts to accelerate the provision of freely accessible remote-sensing information, including open-source tools, to the expanding global community of data users. SNAP provides access to environmental information from numerous remote-sensing missions, including Sentinel-1, Sentinel-2 and Sentinel-3 of the European Union’s Copernicus Programme. It also incorporates data from ESA Earth Explorer missions, such as the SMOS satellite, as well as numerous Third Party missions that are operated by international partners. SNAP enables people to explore, analyse and process remote-sensing data, facilitating cutting-edge scientific research, education and training activities, and the development of a wide range of operational applications. SNAP enjoys wide adoption in many remote-sensing communities including academia, Earth observation service providers and the satellite remote-sensing industry in general. Colours in the graph indicate downloads from different operating systems.
Calling on all interested users of Sentinel data, who would like to submit their results, turning their experiences into 'success stories'.
If you have a good story to tell, of how any of the Sentinel satellites are producing data that bring benefit to your work and/or to society, please contact the Sentinel Online Editors at: email@example.com with your proposals.
