Register to SEPAL and other key platforms#
Create accounts with SEPAL, GEE and CEO, and request additional SEPAL resources
In this article, learn how to:
create a SEPAL account (mandatory)
request additional SEPAL resources (recommended)
register and connect with GEE (recommended)
register to CEO (optional)
Create a SEPAL account#
Go to sepal.io.
Select Launch > Sign up.
Create a username and enter your information into the form.
Select Sign up.
Complete email verification.
Create a password.
After completing registration, request access to the SEPAL Users Google Group by going to <https://groups.google.com/g/sepal-users>`__ and selecting Ask to join group.
For support, go to the GIS StackExchange and ask a question to the community using the SEPAL tag.
With your new account, you can perform basic operations, such as visualizing and processing satellite imagery, saving recipes, and navigating through the platform. However, some SEPAL features are not fully available (e.g. The Terminal and Tools buttons – located in the vertical Tabs bar on the left – are deactivated because these functions require an instance and a quota). To receive full access, go to the Request access section.
Request additional SEPAL resources#
To use SEPAL modules and acesss the command line terminal and development tools like Jupyter or RStudio, you will need to request processing resources.
Select the User report button in the lower-right corner (i.e. $ 0/h).
Select Request additional resources.
Complete the form and select Apply.
If you do not know how many resources you will use, go to the Resource management <resource> section for more information.
Applications are evaluated by the SEPAL team to prevent bots and malicious users from accessing the platform.
Sign up for GEE#
While SEPAL can run computation on its own Google Earth Engine (GEE) account on your behalf, the SEPAL team highly recommends signing up for GEE to improve your experience.
If you already have a Google email address, sign up for a GEE account by going to https://earthengine.google.com/new_signup.
If you don’t have a Google email address, sign up by going to http://mail.google.com/mail/sign-up.
Once you have a GEE account, access the interface by going to https://code.earthengine.google.com.
If you experience problems registering with GEE, ask the community.
Sign up for CEO#
To get the most out of the SEPAL platform’s Classification and Validation tools, the SEPAL team highly suggests using Collect Earth Online (CEO) for collecting point-based training and validation data.
To create a new account:
Open your browser (Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge or Mozilla Firefox).
Go to https://collect.earth.
Complete the form and select Register.
Log in with your email address and password.
If you forget your password, select Forgot your password? and follow the instructions.
