Time zone using get_dates() for sentinel 1


I would like to assure - if I use the get_dates() for WMS request of sentinel 1, will I get the date,specifically the time, (year-month-day with hour-minutes-seconds) in UTC?



Hi @reutkeller,

I can confirm that those timestamps are in UTC+0 timezone.

The reason that those datetime objects don’t have timezone info is that WFS service, which is called in the background, doesn’t return timezone information. But you can compare that with the newer Catalog API service, which does return timezone info.
