EnPT - EnMAP Processing Tool

The Environmental Mapping and Analysis Program (EnMAP) is a German hyperspectral satellite mission that aims at monitoring and characterising the Earth’s environment on a global scale. The EnPT Python package is an automated pre-processing pipeline for the new EnMAP hyperspectral satellite data. It provides free and open-source features to transform EnMAP Level-1B data to Level-2A. The package has been developed at the German Research Centre for Geosciences Potsdam (GFZ) as an alternative to the processing chain of the EnMAP Ground Segment.

The graphical user interface of EnPT The screenshot shows an exemplary EnMAP level 2A output image of EnPT (Arcachon test dataset), visualized within the EnMAP-Box.

This software was developed within the context of the EnMAP project supported by the DLR Space Administration with funds of the German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy and contributions from DLR, GFZ and OHB System AG.

EnPT is especially designed for the needs of the hyperspectral data community who want to have extensive control about the processes and algorithms included in the EnMAP level 2 processing chain. The package is freely available from the Python package index or conda-forge.
