Phi Week 2020

Phi Week (28 September - 2 October 2020) is a virtual event organised by the European Space Agency (ESA), which is designed to reinforce Europe's world-leading Earth Observation capability through innovation and generating new ideas, connecting with scientists, educators, developers, students, start-ups, and global industries and institutions in the field of space.

Virtual  28 September 2020

Friday 2 October 15:30-17:00 BST

E-poster presentation of our work on Sen2Like Phase 2.  The project has developed the capability to ingest Sentinel-2 MSI Level 1C / Level 2A (S2) products or Landsat 8 OLI Level 1 C /L2A (LS8) products to generate two levels of products “harmonized”(H) and “fused”(F):

  • L2H keeps native resolutions: S2 @10m and L8 @30m harmonised through a Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function (BRDF) to maximize inter-operability between the optical satellite missions.
  • L2F provides functionality to increase band resolution to 10m whilst maintaining spectral accuracy.

The e-poster can be viewed below and is published on ESA’s 'EO Open Science' YouTube channel.
