Sentinel-2 NDVI computation

We will use the Unix shell and curl to access the REST API. First open a shell of choice (we use bash here) and setup the login information, the IP address and the port on which the actinia service is running, so you can simply change the IP and port if your server uses a different address:

export ACTINIA_URL=https://actinia.mundialis.de/latest
export AUTH='-u demouser:gu3st!pa55w0rd'
# other user credentials can be provided in the same way

The following asynchronous API call computes the NDVI of the Sentinel-2 scene S2A_MSIL1C_20161206T030112_N0204_R032_T50RKR_20161206T030749:

 curl ${AUTH} -X POST "${ACTINIA_URL}/sentinel2_process/ndvi/S2A_MSIL1C_20161206T030112_N0204_R032_T50RKR_20161206T030749"

The response provides the status URL that must be polled to receive the finished response:

   },
   "user_id": "demouser"
 }

Poll the status of the asynchronous API call by polling the status URL. Be aware that you have to change the status url as the resource id will change for different NDVI API calls.

 curl ${AUTH} -X GET http://actinia.mundialis.de/api/v3/resources/demouser/resource_id-6b849585-576f-40b5-a514-34a7cf1f97ce

The final result will contain a complete processing list as well as URL\'s to the resulting PNG preview image, the created NDVI GeoTiff file as well as univariate statistics of the computed NDVI scene.
