EO-learn tutorial example


I’ve been testing EO-Learn package by trying to execute the jupyter notebook example SI_LULC_pipeline.ipyng you have in GitHub. The problem occurs when python code reaches cell 16. The messages are:

At this point it seems that “disk_radius” argument defined in cell 14 is not understood by PointSamplingTask function.

I’ve tried to remove this argument in cell 14 and the execution continues reaching the end of the jupyter notebook, but the results are clearly anomalous.

Some ideas on solving this problem?



We’ve recently changed the PointSamplingTask and we are working on changing the examples.

The erosion operation is now a separate task, geometry.ErosionTask.

The erosion has to be explicitly executed now, while no disk radius is accepted anymore by the sampling task.

The following code should fix the example:

# cell 14
# add erosion task
from eolearn.geometry import ErosionTask

disk_radius = 1 # size of erosion disk, applied before sampling
erosion = ErosionTask((FeatureType.MASK_TIMELESS, 'LULC'), disk_radius=disk_radius)

# remove disk_radius from sampling task
# Uniformly sample about 100k pixels from patches
n_samples = int(4e4) if use_smaller_patches else int(1e5) # no. of pixels to sample
ref_labels = [0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10] # reference labels to take into account when sampling
spatial_sampling = PointSamplingTask(
    sample_features=[  # tag fields to sample
        (FeatureType.DATA, 'FEATURES'), 
        (FeatureType.MASK, 'IS_VALID'),
        (FeatureType.MASK_TIMELESS, 'LULC')

# cell 15
# add erosion to workflow
workflow = EOWorkflow(dependencies=[
    Dependency(transform=load, inputs=[]),
    Dependency(transform=concatenate, inputs=[load]),
    Dependency(transform=filter_task, inputs=[concatenate]),
    Dependency(transform=linear_interp, inputs=[filter_task]),
    Dependency(transform=move_features, inputs=[linear_interp, filter_task]),
    Dependency(transform=erosion, inputs=[move_features]),
    Dependency(transform=spatial_sampling, inputs=[erosion]),

Let us know if this works. We will update the examples as soon as possible.


It apparently works but since this point the results are different than expected.

In cell 21 I get a different accuracy:


Also in cell 22:


the figure in cell 27 is the following:


And the most important difference is in the image displayed in cell 29:


I’ve re-run the example with the suggested changes and got the same results as in the original notebook. Can you delete the previously generated eopatches and re-run the modified notebook again? Don’t forget to add erosion to the workflow.

From the image in cell 29, the issue seems to be in the input features, likely from the interpolation task.

Which versions of eo-learn, sentinelhub-py and s2cloudless are you using?


Thanks for your fast answers. I deleted the eopatches and re-ran the code obtaining the same figure in cell 29. Erosion was added to the code.

sentinelhub version is 2.4.7
s2cloudless version is 1.2.2


what about the version of eo-learn?

I used the same versions for sentinelhub and s2cloudless and the version for eo-learn was 0.4.0


In file PKG-INFO is written version 0.3.3


Could you please uninstall the current version and pip install --upgrade eolearn and re-run the notebook with the added erosion. This would help pin-point the issue.

Thank you


Sorry Devis, when uninstalling eo-learn I realized that version 0.4.0 was in fact installed. Anyway, I installed again version 0.4.0 and same results are obtained.I cannot upload the my jupyter notebook file here but I can send it by email (in that case I need your email address)


The jupyter notebook I’m using may be downloaded from here


Thanks. Your updated notebook is correct, I’ve run it in my environment and it produces the expected results.

You are using the python-template configuration for sentinel-hub, correct?

I would suggest if possible to create a clean Python environment with latest eo-learn to rule out environment conflicts, and to make sure the atmospheric correction in you SH configuration layers is set to None.

Let us know if this works. We’ll try to update the example in the meanwhile


The example has been updated here in the develop branch, and has been tested on that branch as well.


Thanks a lot for your help!

I created a new configuration and set the configuration to be based on Python scripts template to be sure on that point. After that I configured it (sentinelhub.config --instance_id <the_nerw_instance id>). I deleted the EO-patches and again the same results are obtained.


The notebook is correct, and the set up of SH seems to be correct as well (double-check that atmospheric correction in BANDS-S2CLOUDLESS is set to None).

Have you perhaps tried creating a new clean Python environment? I would create one, pip install --upgrade eo-learn, copy the examples and example_data folders from the master branch somewhere outside the eo-learn repo, and try running the notebook again. Shouldn’t be necessary, but might be easier for debugging.


Atmospheric correction in BANDS-S2CLOUDLESS is set to None.

I uninstalled anaconda3 and installed again ANACONDA3-5.2.0 (with python 3.6.5).

After that I installed:

  • Pyproj
  • numpy 1.14.6
  • sentinelhub 2.4.7
  • s2cloudless 1.2.2
  • GDAL 2.3.2
  • rasterio 1.0.10
  • Fiona 1.7.13
  • tqdm 4.28.1
  • eo-learn 0.4.0

I copied the examples and example_data folder in a different folder (even a different disc).

Image in cell 29 is still wrong.


Perhaps you can write me an e-mail at sinergise.com and we can try find the issue by comparing eopatches.

Here is what I did:

$ mkdir eo-learn; cd eo-learn
$ git clone https://github.com/sentinel-hub/eo-learn.git .
$ git checkout develop
$ cd examples/land-cover-map
$ conda create --name eo-learn-env python=3.6
$ source activate eo-learn-env
$ pip install --upgrade eo-learn
$ pip install tqdm jupyterlab
$ conda install -c conda-forge ipywidgets
$ sentinelhub.config --instance_id <your_instance_id>

These operations lead to an environment with:

  • eo-learn=0.4.0
  • Fiona=1.8.4
  • jupyterlab=0.35.4
  • lightgbm=2.2.2
  • numpy=1.15.4
  • rasterio=1.0.13
  • s2cloudless=1.2.2
  • scipy=1.2.0
  • sentinelhub=2.4.7

Running $ jupyter-lab SI_LULC_pipeline.ipynb and all cells of example gave correct result.


Hard to understand but with the new environment and performing the steps you mentioned I obtain again the undesired result.

The installation of eo-learn initially failed requiring the pre-installation of some packages:

  • pyproj (pyproj-
  • GDAL (GDAL-2.3.2-cp36-cp36m-win_amd64.whl)
  • rasterio (rasterio-1.0.12-cp36-cp36m-win_amd64.whl)
  • fiona (Fiona-1.8.4-cp36-cp36m-win_amd64.whl)
