How to use JupyterHub?

First of all, to use JupyterHub you have to be registered and signed in Creodias.

Please see: How to register to Creodias Portal?

After that, choose Tools →  JupyterHub from navigation menu:


Then you can see main page of JupyterHub. It is highly recommended to create new projects in persistent directory to avoid data loss caused by  e.g. by restart of your Jupyter Notebook container.


You can create a new script by choosing New and the language of your choice e.g. Python 3.


Product Query and selection

You can define search parameters and query the CREODIAS Finder engine for products that correspond to chosen parameters. Finder API is describerd here: 



To run the script you can use "Run" button on the top or use shortcut "Ctrl + Enter".

All shortcuts are available after clicking keyboard icon, there you can also define your own shortcuts. Keep in mind that you have to save your script.


Below you can find the above code.

Query = 'Tokio%20Winter' # here you can define semantic search
Cloud = '[0,5]' # here you can define cloud cover in percentage
sort = 'sortParam=cloudCover&sortOrder=ascending'
Coll = 'Sentinel2' # here you can choose which satellite are you interested in
ResultNumber = 0
OutputFileName = 'TrueColor'

URL = 'http://finder.creodias.eu/resto/api/collections/' + Coll +'/search.json?_pretty=true&q=' + Query + '&' + 'cloudCover=' + Cloud + '&' + sort import json, requests, os
products = json.loads(requests.get(URL).text)['features']
for product in products:
file = products[ResultNumber]['properties']['productIdentifier']


Product selection

Using selected product identifier (stored in "file" variable), you can open access bands to be later saved as a GeoTif.

import rasterio
path = file + '/GRANULE' + '/' + os.listdir(file + '/GRANULE')[0] + '/IMG_DATA'
if (os.path.isdir(path + '/' + sorted(os.listdir(path))[0])):
    path = path + '/' + sorted(os.listdir(path))[0]

band2 = rasterio.open(path + '/' + sorted(os.listdir(path))[1]) #blue
band3 = rasterio.open(path + '/' + sorted(os.listdir(path))[2]) #green
band4 = rasterio.open(path + '/' + sorted(os.listdir(path))[3]) #red


GeoTif creation

Now you can create a GeoTif file. Bands are stored in GeoTiff format and saved to the current directory of your Notebook.

We recommend storing the results in "persistent" directory.

from rasterio import plot
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
trueColor = rasterio.open( OutputFileName + '.tiff','w',driver='Gtiff',
                         width=band4.width, height=band4.height,
trueColor.write(band2.read(1), 3) #blue
trueColor.write(band3.read(1), 2) #green
trueColor.write(band4.read(1), 1) #red
os.path.isfile(OutputFileName + '.tiff')


Displaying the image

Now you can display the image.

from rasterio.plot import show

fp = r'TrueColor.tiff'

img = rasterio.open(fp)


Now you can download the result to your desktop.
