Import Sentinel-2 L2A product

Prepare a spectral raster layer from the given product. Wavelength information is set and data is scaled into the 0 to 10000 range.


  1. Open the algorithm from the processing toolbox.

  2. Select the metadata file MTD_MSIL2A.xml, then click run.

  3. The output raster can be found under Rasters in the Data Source Panel


Metadata file [file]

The MTD_MSIL2A.xml metadata file associated with the product. Instead of executing this algorithm, you may drag&drop the metadata file directly from your system file browser a) onto the EnMAP-Box map view area, or b) onto the Sensor Product Import panel.

Band list [enum]

Bands to be stacked together. Defaults to all 10m and 20m bands ordered by center wavelength. Note that the destination pixel size matches the smallest/finest pixel size over all selected bands.

Default: [0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11]


Output raster layer [rasterDestination]

Raster file destination.
