Automatically Generate a Radiometrically Terrain-Corrected (RTC) Sentinel-1 Image using Cloud Computing

Source: ASF Staff


What is the CloudFormation Template? ASF DAAC provides an open-sourced CloudFormation template that creates a pipeline for running RTC on Sentinel-1 products. The CloudFormation template itself is a set of instructions for AWS components to know when and how to talk to one another. For example, the template creates and connects a variety of AWS components, like a queue for managing work, and EC2 instances that do the actual work (RTC in this case).

This diagram visualizes the CloudFormation template and shows how the different components relate to one another.
