sen2r is an R package developed by the Institute of Remote Sensing of Environment (IREA) of the Italian National Research Council, with the aim to simplify and speed up several steps commonly needed to process Sentinel-2 data. Recently, an important recognition to the worth and usefulness of this tool came from the ISI journal Computers & Geosciences, publishing the scientific paper “sen2r”: An R toolbox for automatically downloading and preprocessing Sentinel-2 satellite data.
Up to the 14th of May 2020, it is possible to get free access to the manuscript at this link: https://authors.elsevier.com/a/1ao0SMMTPaksz.
The paper provides an overview of the functionalities of the package, including the description of a use case in the framework of a Service-Oriented Architecture (further information can be found at this link).
sen2r is released with license GNU GPL-3, so it can be freely accessed and modified by users. The complete reference to the article, here reported, is to be used in scientific works that exploit the package:
