ExtenSO API V3.0.6

Main features:

  • Download the list of products in a bucket provided by the user or in a free bucket with a 10Go limit.
  • A single interface to download the whole spectrum of Copernicus Products.
  • Estimate the necessary storage required by an order.
  • Search for Products Metadata.
  • Search for Products Ids.
  • Download Products Quicklook and Thumbnail.

Available Collections :

  • S1, S2, S3 and S5P are currently available.
  • We plan to add other sources of data than Copernicus.

Available Sources :

  • Sobloo and Copernicus Data Hub are currently available (Diashub1).


extenSO FREE User :

  • Default Storage : 10 Go
  • You can use all the services
  • If you need more storage contact us

Why extenSO API ?

  • Get the products directly inside your bucket : The Sources and APIs of each service are constantly evolving. It takes time to create and maintain scripts that allows you to download from different sources.
  • Solve Sources Problems : The differents Data Providers have many problems (offline services for days, download errors, products are missing, etc.). With extenSO API, if some errors occurs, further attempts tp download will be automaticly executed, you do not need to worry.
  • Long Term Archives are hard to handle : When you want to warmup a product stored in cold storage it can take up to two days for it to be downloadable. The extenSO Api will trigger the warmup and download it automaticly into your bucket.
  • Too many APIs with differents collections : With the ExtenSO API you can access products from Sobloo, Copernicus Data Hub to cover the main collections and products.
  • Avoid Free User Limitations : The Copernicus Data Hub (SciHub) allows you to download only two products in parallel and 20 warmup request every 12h. By using ExtenSO, you bypass this constraint and get onto our larger bandwidth.
  • Avoid collection limitations : Sources other than the SciHub (limited in bandwidth) only store partial products from some collections. When using extenSO and Sobloo, you can get the whole spectrum.

Getting Started

1. Authentication

You can choose between One Atlas or Sobloo

1.1 Solution 1 (Recommanded) : One Atlas

1.2 Sobloo

2. Import Collections and Environement in Postman

3. Create the list of Product Ids that you want

The catalog works thanks to several public reference catalogs.

API Search documentation (Opensearch) : S1, S2, S3 and S5p

Note: For each collection a reference catalog is used:

Search Products Metadata (S1, S2, S3 and S5P)

  • Open the folder : Search (Products, Quicklooks, Thumbnails) > Search Metadata
  • You can find many examples of search requests
  • The syntaxe is the same as API sci-hub

Create a list of Products (S1, S2, S3 and S5P)

  • Open the folder : Search (Products, Quicklooks, Thumbnails) > Search Ids
  • You can find many examples of search requests
  • The syntaxe is the same as API sci-hub

Example of list containing one S1, one S2 and one S3 product :
