Webinar: Access Sentinel-1 Data
Webinar: Access Sentinel-1 SAR Data with NASA ASF DAAC's Vertex
By Lisa W. Drew
Alaska Satellite Facility
For both new and experienced users
Focusing on Sentinel-1 data, this webinar surveys Vertex features (many of which are new or improved) and demonstrates a search, including refining the results. For users who require more in-depth filtering, we discuss how to export and sort metadata for user-selected products and how to use sorted results for a search. Finally, we demonstrate downloading data via browser or using an ASF provided, pre-loaded script.
SAR data is increasingly used in research and applications across a broad range of fields. Synthetic aperture radar (SAR) provides all-weather, day-night, high-resolution, landscape-level data. Applications include mapping and detecting wetlands, oil spills, landslides, deformation, sea ice, and much more.
