from sentinelhub import FisRequest, Geometry, CRS
    time_interval = (start_date.strftime("%Y-%m-%d"), end_date.strftime("%Y-%m-%d"))

    fis_request = FisRequest(layer=XXX,
                             geometry_list=[Geometry(feature['geometry'], CRS.WGS84)],

    fis_data = fis_request.get_data()

I would like to average VH data for a polygon using the sentinelhub API. I am using the FisRequest API to do that but I am not sure what to specify for layer and resolution and if that is indeed the correct way to do it.


Statistical API (FIS) is for sure the most convenient option.

I suggest you create a new layer in Configuration utility, choosing the data source to be Sentinel-1 GRD, then writing this in the Script window:

return [VV];

Resolution should be 20m.

  • thanks @Grega M. I realized that a BANDS-S1-IW layer already exists in the configuration. If instead of return [VV]; I use return [VV, VH];, then the fis_request would contain VV in C0 and VH in C1 right? – user1186 Apr 16 '20 at 4:13

    Yes, you are right. – Grega M. Apr 17 '20 at 5:02
