This is a time-lapse of all clear-sky images captured by Venµs over the Khumbu Icefall near Mount Everest since November 2017 (one year of data, 51 images at 5 m resolution).Khumbu Icefall by VenµsHere I used the Level-1C products (i.e. without atmospheric correction) because the Level-2A products are provided at a lower resolution (10 m). Anyway, the atmosphere is rather thin in this area..To make this animation (without the date annotation to simplify):1) downloadpython ./theia_download.py -l 'Nepal' -c VENUS -a config_theia.cfg -d 2017-11-01 -f 2018-12-01 --level 'LEVEL1C'2) unzip mkdir -p ../VENUSparallel unzip -d ../VENUS ::: $(find . -name "VENUS*zip")3) export as natural color picturescd ../VENUSmkdir -p VISparallel gdal_translate -srcwin 4118 3132 1058 770 -of JPEG -b 7 -b 4 -b 3 -scale 0 800 0 255 -ot byte {} VIS/{/.}.jpg ::: $(find . -name VE*[0-9].DBL.TIF)4) animate with imagemagickconvert -delay 10 VIS/*jpg anim.gif
