Data Cube Collection Naming
Each BDC Data Cube Collection is named following the convention:
<Satellite Sensor Alias>_<Time Step>*-<Version>
Satellite Sensor Alias is an alias to an image collection satellite e. g. S2, LC8, C4, representing Sentinel-2, Landsat-8 and CBERS-4, respectively. Note that a full description of the product can be found on its documentation.
Time Step only is required when the data cube is time-composed. The Time Step is represented in naming by an integer followed by a capital letter, which can be D, M or Y, representing day, month and year, respectively;
Examples of Data Cube names are: S2-16D-2 (Composed), S2-2 (Identity).
Data Cube Collection File Naming
<Data Cube Collection>_<Version>_<Tile>_<Start Period>_<Band>.tif
Data Cube Collection is an alias indicating a BDC data cube collection;
Version is the version of the Data Cube;
Tile is the code of a grid cell that contains the image;
Start Period is written as year-month-day and refers the first date of the compositing period;
Band indicates the file band
.tif indicate the file format, Cloud Optimized Geotiff (COG) in this case.
The file name “S2-16D_V2_008013_20220101_B01.tif”, for instance, represents a cube composed by images from the S2-16D_V2 data cube collection, which is an alias to S2-16D-2. This name indicates that it is a Sentinel-2 data cube (S2), using a time compositing function each 16 days (16D), version 2, from a tile with code 008013, which indicates Path (008) and Row(013), starting in January 01, specifically the coastal band image (B01).
