Sentinel Hub Custom Script Contest Autumn- Starting on October 15th 2019 until January 15th 2020

From Sentinel Hub

Sentinel Hub together with its data partners, the Copernicus EU Earth Observation programme and the European Space Agency, are looking for new and innovative ideas and scripts to allow all people to browse, analyse and visualise satellite data in almost real-time.

This is a follow up to the similar contest in Spring 2019 which motivated the repeat of the contest.

Starting on October 15th 2019 until January 15th 2020 you can hand in up to three different scripts for the Sentinel Hub EO Browser. All the entries will be judged by a jury of experts on functionality and usefulness, as well as possible commercial potential. The authors of the best three scripts will win attractive prizes…


All the submitted scripts will compete under one common category as we want the Contest to be completely open. Many scripts could run in different categories anyway, so it is just fair to compare them to all scripts handed in.

Important Requirements

  • Scripts applicability
  • False detection problems (if any)
  • Detailed description of how the script works
  • Representative cases / images with details
  • Visualization in EO Browser or with multi-temporal instance of Sentinel Playground (a link to a working script)
  • References
  • Credits – In case your script is based on other people’’s work make sure to include the necessary citations and links to relevant papers.
