Theia Soil Moisture with very high spatial resolution SEC is further expanding its collection with a large series of maps for central Italy. This is the third collection available for Italy with Northern Italy and Sardinia.

The Central Italy collection includes 200 maps documenting soil moisture at parcel scale for almost three years, from 8 September 2016 to 28 December 2019. Like the other regional collections for this product, the Central Italy collection benefits from the high repeatability of the Sentinel-1 sensors (every 6 days).

14 sites in Europe and around the Mediterranean Sea

With this new collection, the VHSR Soil Moisture product offers data for 14 sites in Europe and around the Mediterranean basin. A new collection dedicated to Navarra (Spain) is currently being produced.

Available Soil Moisture Data on March, 2, 2020.

THISMEDownload.py : a dedicated tool for downloading

To facilitate entire collection download, an automatic THISMEDownload.py script has been developed by Loïc Lozac’h (INRAE engineer). The script is usable only on a Linux system because it contains dependencies (curl, wget) only available on this system. It allows batch downloading of the data present on the THISME web application.
