Create a SEPAL account#
Go to sepal.io.
Select Launch > Sign up.
Enter your information into the form.
Select Sign up.
Complete email verification.
Create a password.
After completing registration, you can request access to the SEPAL Users Google Group.
Go to https://groups.google.com/g/sepal-users and select Ask to join group.
For support, go to the Geographic Information Systems 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. in the Tabs bar on the left, Terminal and Tools are deactivated because these functions require an instance and a quota). To get 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 Quota > 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.
