Sentinel Hub's cloud detector for Sentinel-2 imagery
The s2cloudless Python package provides automated cloud detection in Sentinel-2 imagery. The classification is based on a single-scene pixel-based cloud detector developed by Sentinel Hub's research team and is described in more details in this blog.
The package requires a Python version >= 3.5. The package is available on the PyPI package manager and can be installed with
$ pip install s2cloudless
To install the package manually, clone the repository and
$ python setup.py build $ python setup.py install
s2cloudless dependecies is

Input: Sentinel-2 scenes
The input to cloud detector are Sentinel-2 images. In particular, the cloud detector requires the following 10
Sentinel-2 band reflectances: B01, B02, B04, B05, B08, B8A, B09, B10, B11, B12, which are obtained from raw
reflectance value in the following way:
You don't need to worry about any of this, if you're doing classification of scenes obtained using Sentinel Hub's WMS or WCS services (i.e. using ours Python library sentinelhub-py).
Jupyter notebook on how to use the cloud detector to produce cloud mask or cloud probability map can be found in the examples folder.
