Actinia Satellite Plugin

This actinia plugin is designed for efficient satellite data handling, especially Landsat and Sentinel-2 scenes. It implements endpoints for on-the-fly NDVI computation and time series import for Landsat and Sentinel-2 scenes in the actinia database.


Actinia[1] is an open source REST API for scalable, distributed, high performance processing of geographical data that uses GRASS GIS for computational tasks.

The Actinia service consists of the Actinia Core that provides the basic but sophisticated processing service and Actinia plugins that provide problem specific services like Sentinel-2 and Landsat NDVI computation, spatio-temporal statistical analysis and many more.



The actinia plugin must be installed in the same environment as actinia core. Actinia core must be configured to load the installed plugin. When the plugin is loaded and all plugin endpoints are available in actinia, the interface description of actinia will be extended with the endpoints of the plugins.

git clone

cd actinia_satellite_plugin
pip3 install -r requirements.txt
python3 install

After installation set the plugin name in the actinia core configuration and restart the actinia core server.
