How Do I Visualize My Own Collection in EO Browser?

To view your collection in EO Browser, you first need to create a new configuration with visualization layers. To follow the steps below, you will need an account and a collection ID. Your collection ID is located in your tab of the configuration utility, where all your collections with ingested tiles are located. There are also some public collections available on our GitHub, where the collection ID can be found for each of them.

Check out how you can find your collection ID by expanding the GIF demonstration below:

1. Create a new configuration

1.1. Without a template

  • Copy your collection ID to clipboard and go to the  tab.
  • Click on the  button.
  • Choose a name for your configuration and click on the green  button to submit.
  • When the configuration is created, you will see an empty configuration. Continue to section 1.3 to create a new layer.

1.2. With a template

BYOC templates with pre prepared visualization layers are available for commercial data (PlanetScope) and some publicly available collections.

  • Copy your collection ID to clipboard and go to the  tab.
  • Click on the  button.
  • Choose a name for your configuration and select the optional configuration template matching your data (e.g. Sentinel-2 L2A 120 m Mosaic).
  • When done, click the  button to submit.
  • When the configuration is created, you will see a couple of layers already prepared. Click the expand arrow  next to each layer title, to see the additional information.
  • You will see that the source is set to Bring Your Own COG and the Collection ID field displays a string of zeroes. Replace this string with your collection ID for each layer in your configuration.
  • Save all your changed layers by clicking on the  button next to each layer.

1.3. Create a new layer

  • In your configuration, click on the  button.
  • Choose the name for your layer and set the source to be Bring Your Own COG.
  • Setting the source to Bring Your Own COG will enable the Collection ID field, which will be empty. Enter your collection ID into this field.
  • Click on the pencil icon  next to Data Processing, to open the scripting window.
  • For BYOC, no data products are available. You will have to write a visualization script into the window on the right. To do so, you need to know which bands are available for your ingested data and their names. If your data is of the constellation supported by Sentinel Hub (e.g. Sentinel-2, Landsat 8, DEM), you can find band information and example evalscripts on our data documentation and on our custom script repository.
  • When your evalscript is inserted, submit it by clicking on the  button. Note that evalscript is a requirement of Sentinel Hub, as it tells the system how to visualize your data.
  • When done, click on the  button, to save your layer settings.

2. Visualize Your Configuration in EO Browser

  • Open EO Browser and click on the login button on the top right, to login to your Sentinel Hub account.
  • Expand the dropdown menu located under Theme on top. Find your configuration by name and select it.
  • Toggle on the data collections found under Data Sources. For BYOC, the offered data collection will usually match the name of your configuration or visualization layers.
  • On the map, zoom to the area where your tiles are ingested and select a time range, that includes the acquisition time of your ingested tiles. 
  • If you are unsure what the ingestion dates and locations for your tiles are, check it out on GitHub if you’re working with a public collection, or click on the tile in your collection in the Bring Your Own COG section of the Dashboard. See how to do so here (20:38 - 21:00).
  • When done, click the  button.
  • If your search parameters are set correctly, you should see your tiles listed in search results and they should appear on the map. To select one of your tiles, click the  button.
  • Your data will be visualized with the layers from your configuration. Feel free to explore them.
