I'm relatively new to GIS and am wanting to mask out the clouds of Landsat images using the supplied QA band, I'm limited to free programs, mainly QGIS.
So far I've managed to get a cloud mask shapefile using an extension for QGIS. My problem however is that I want to do this for a few hundred files and I can't find any way to do this without spending hours manually. My hope is that I can cut clouds and their shadows from the bands of data so I can perform NDVI analysis without having to worry about inaccurate data.
I've had a go at using Google Earth Engine and whilst my coding knowledge is rather limited I am making progress now.
