Getting metadata using SentinelHubRequest

Hello everyone,

Is there a way to get the metadata of the downloaded image? Like the date or the name of the Tile.

I’am using the SentinelHubRequest class.

And calling the method like:

    request_all_bands = SentinelHubRequest(
    data_folder = sentinel_folder,
    evalscript=evalscript_all_bands,

    input_data=[
        SentinelHubRequest.input_data(
            data_source=DataSource.SENTINEL2_L2A,
            time_interval=('2020-01-01', '2020-09-11'),
            mosaicking_order= "mostRecent",
            maxcc= 0.05,        
    )],
    responses=[
        SentinelHubRequest.output_response('default', MimeType.TIFF)
    ],
    bbox=bbox,
    size=size,
    config=config)

It is.

curl example is shown in Sentinel Hub docs. With Python an example that retrieves a normalisation factor for S2L1C data is shown in this example .

Outputing the ‘scene’ object should probably get all the info you are after, see scene object description on SH docs.

Hope that helps.

thanks I could make it work correctly, but it seems that the metadata for sentinel2-L2A is empty, finally I ended up using WcsRequest, to get the information

Hi @mauricio.saavedra.n

It works for me, using the following:

evalscript = """
    //VERSION=3

    function setup() {
        return {
            input: [{
                bands: ["B02", "B03", "B04"],
                units: "DN"
            }],
            output: {
                bands: 3,
                sampleType: "INT16"
            },
            mosaicking: Mosaicking.TILE
        };
    }

    function updateOutputMetadata(scenes, inputMetadata, outputMetadata) {
        outputMetadata.userData = { "norm_factor":  inputMetadata.normalizationFactor, 
                                    "scenes":  JSON.stringify(scenes)}
    }

    function evaluatePixel(sample) {
        return [sample.B04, sample.B03, sample.B02];
    }
"""

request_multitype = SentinelHubRequest(
    evalscript=evalscript,
    input_data=[
        SentinelHubRequest.input_data(
            data_collection=DataSource.SENTINEL2_L2A,
            time_interval=('2020-06-01', '2020-06-30'),
            mosaicking_order='leastCC'
        )
    ],
    responses=[
        SentinelHubRequest.output_response('default', MimeType.TIFF),
        SentinelHubRequest.output_response('userdata', MimeType.JSON)
    ],
    bbox=betsiboka_bbox,
    size=betsiboka_size,
    config=config
)

multi_data = request_multitype.get_data()[0]
multi_data['userdata.json']['scenes']

gives me this:

Hope this will help.

i am using your script and get all metadata, but the image only return number 0 or nan, you know why?
When i remove “mosaicking: Mosaicking.TILE”, the image return well.
thanks .
