What is a Notebook?

A notebook is a web application that allows you to create and share documents that contain live code, equations, visualizations and narrative text.
It is based on the Open Source Jupyter notebooks application, and tailored to the needs of remote sensing users. Each notebook has direct access to the Terrascope, PROBA-V, SPOT-VGT and Copernicus Global Land datasets.

How to work with Notebooks?

Notebooks are only enabled for users on specific demand. If you want notebook access, use the 'Request notebook access' form.

On https://notebooks.terrascope.be, you can login to the notebooks application with your Terrascope username and password, which is the same account as used on www.vito-eodata.be or PROBA-V MEP.

Notebook samples

By default, some sample notebooks are provided under folder Private/notebook-samples. You may want to run git pull inside this directory to get the latest version.

The samples are subdivided in two sections:

  • datasets: notebooks using either Sentinel or PROBA-V data
  • tools: notebooks using tools provided by the Terrascope platform (e.g. SNAP, R, catalogclient, etc ...)

Leaflet support in older (<3.6) Python versions?

In the jupyterlab interface leaflet support is broken for Python35. However, it can still be used when you switch to the Jupyter classic interface (via Help > Launch classic notebook). Another option is migrating to Python36 where leaflet works in both the lab and classic interfaces.
