Dear DragonHack participant,

get an easy access to open satellite data (Sentinel, Landsat, MODIS, etc.), and use it for your DragonHack solution. Join our challenge Best Earth Observation Hack. To learn more about the possibilities of using the Sentinel Hub services, join our workshop Tackling petabytes of satellite data with 6 lines of code on Saturday, November 7th 2020 at 12:20. Here is a sneak peek into our presentation:

What are You Getting with the Sentinel Hub Services?

  • The best open data processing service out there.
  • Free access for one month to an Earth Observation rapid prototyping environment, including access to various EO open data collections.
  • Access to web-based sandbox environment to easily and rapidly build indicator-based products - Sentinel Playground and EO Browser.
  • Support team (available through the Discord platform (DragonHack server), or send us an email).

Award for the Winning Team of the "Best Earth Observation Hack"

  • One year Sentinel Hub subscription in value of 5,000 € (Enterprise S package).
  • Playstation PS5 digital edition for each member of the winning team. The new Playstation will be released on 19th November 2020.

What do You Actually Get, Since the Data is Free Anyway?

  • Copernicus and Landsat data are indeed free (thanks to European Commission and USGS) but there are many steps needed to get value from these data - download, processing, storage, distribution. All of which takes time and requires IT resources adding additional costs.
  • Sentinel Hub provides seamless and immediate access to these data with most common processing steps applied (band math, clipping, mosaicking, time-series analysis, etc.) in a way to be integrated in 3rd party applications.
  • 30 day trial makes it possible to get familiar with the service, configure your workflow, expose it as an API and integrate it in a 3rd party application.
  • The prize, 1 year subscription, makes it possible to consolidate the prototype, offer it to potential customers and earn revenue! Ideal way to build a startup on top of your Hackathon idea.

How to Get Access to the Service?

Create a 30-days trial account at the following address. It's free.

Send us an email if you already had a Sentinel Hub trial account in the past and you would like to create a new one with the same email address. We will create a new trial for you (or prolong the existing one) for the DragonHack purposes.
