New Video Tutorials

Today we published some new video tutorials, showing the basic functionalities of SNAP. For example they show the usage of the Mask Manager, the Colour Manipulation Tool and how to use pins and the spectrum tool. The videos are available in the tutorial section. More videos are planned.

SNAP Toolbox Components for Download

It has been reported in some rare cases that the installation of SNAP components from within the installer fails due to download errors. This happens for several reasons, problems with internet proxy, restrictive firewall settings or general connection problems. Therefore we now provide all toolbox components in one archive for download. Note this is only optional. In general you can rely on the download within the installer. However, providing these components also allows users to put everything on a DVD or USB-Stick and install SNAP and the Sentinel Toolboxes on a system without internet connection. The archive file is provided on the download page.

The SNAP Development team is pleased to announce the final SNAP 2.0 release which is now waiting to be downloaded. Enjoy!

Dear beta testers, please uninstall your SNAP beta versions and make sure to let the installer delete previous SNAP data directories. And again thanks so much for your patience, feedback, and support!
