With Sentinel-1

In this tutorial you are going to learn how to derive a classification of crop types from radar images. You will use SNAP to process a time series of Sentinel-1 images of an agricultural area in Germany.

You will use the concept of temporal backscatter signatures to derive information from the radar images. Make sure you prepare carefully with the following steps, so you are ready to enjoy and learn from the tutorial.


In order to do this tutorial, you have to make sure you’ve installed SNAP. If you did not, please go back to lesson 2 and follow the instructions in the topic Introduction to SNAP.
