Analyzing COVID-19 using Python and remote sensing images

Python libraries such as Sentinelsat, HARP and VISAN are very useful in order to download, analyze and visualize long series of remote sensing images. The objective of this talk is to expose how to use these tools to create a cartography map that reflects the mobility and industrial activity decrease during the COVID-19 lockdown.
