Sentinel Hub Custom Script Contests

Remote sensing is making its way into more and more applications and fields. Tools like the Sentinel Hub EO Browser with its custom scripting allow all people to browse, analyse and visualise satellite data in almost real-time.

Together with our partners, the Euro Data Cube (EDC), the EU's Copernicus Earth Observation programme and the European Space Agency the people behind Sentinel Hub are looking for new and innovative ideas and scripts. Therefore, they have organised a series of the Sentinel Hub Custom Script Contests starting with the first one in Spring 2019 and following with the second one in Winter 2019/2020. In April and May they organised a special edition of the Contest – the Covid-19 Custom Script Contest. Its aim was to help the world facing huge challenges getting back to ‘normal’ after the coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic. The success of the series motivated them to continue with the third edition of the Contest in Summer 2020.

Join the Urban Growth in Africa Contest!

This special edition of the Sentinel Hub Custom Script Contest started on 3rd May 2021 and will end at midnight on 25th July 2021. The objective of this activity is to demonstrate the power of a deep multi-temporal and multi-resolution data cube combined from Sentinel-1, Sentinel-2 and Landsat. The area of interest they are looking at is Africa. To make it even more interesting, they have selected Dakar, Senegal, and loaded it with even more data – Airbus Pléiades and SPOT, Maxar WorldView/GeoEye provided by European Space imaging, and PlanetScope. Take this opportunity to explore the depth and detail of so much commercial data and dense time series over a long period available for one location.
