* Archived Landsat Collection-1 are not managed because of the tar.gz format, which is too slow to process. It is better to work on the extracted product. * Other Maxar satellites (such as WorldView-1, QuickBird…) with the same file format should be supported.

Warning

Satellites products that cannot be used as archived have to be extracted before use.

The goal of EOReader is to implement every sensor that can be used in the Copernicus Emergency Management Service.
The sensors that can be used as of 09/2021 are:
cems_sensors

Optical bands

The following bands are available in EOReader, but may not be available for all sensors.

Warning

EOReader loads bands in UTM. VHR bands can be orthorectified but EOReader needs a DEM for that. Be sure to position the environment variable EOREADER_DEM_PATH to the DEM you want.

Satellite bands

Note

Optical bands are always loaded in reflectance. For Sentinel-3 SLSTR, radiances are converted to reflectance, expcept for brilliance temperature bands that are left as is.

Band names

These bands are mainly based on Sentinel-2 bands with some additions:

Note

Note that bands that are not mapped can still be used (i.e. for Sentinel-3 OLCI and SLSTR). They will be called by their true name (i.e. F1 or Oa05). However, the mapped band will have to be called with their mapped name, i.e. BLUE rather than Oa04 for Sentinel-3 OLCI. But the bands that are not present in the ~eoreader.bands.alias file won’t be recognized.

* Not all bands of this sensor are mapped in EOReader. However, they can still be used by using directly their name (i.e. F1 or Oa05)
** P(panchro) have only one panchromatic band, P/MS-N have 3 bands (BGR), and P/MS-X also have 3 bands in false color (GRNIR)
