Cloud to Street - Microsoft Flood Dataset - Sentinel-2

Short description

The Cloud to Street - Microsoft Flood Dataset (C2S-MS Floods) is a dataset of near-coincident Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2 data paired with water labels from 18 global flood events. These labels are derived products of MODIS sensor on board NASA's Aqua and Terra satellites produced as a part of the study, "Satellite imaging reveals increased proportion of population exposed to floods," Nature (2021), doi: 10.1038/s41586-021-03695-w. In this collection, we keep the water label which represents the maximum observed flood extent during the time period of the event and the cloud/cloud shadow label for Sentinel-2. For a detailed description of the methods used to generate these labels, please refer to the original paper.

Band information

The C2S-MS Floods - Sentinel-2 contains a water label representing the flood extent and a cloud/cloud shadow label.
Band Name Sample Type Expected Values Description
water UINT 8 0 - no water, 1 - water, 255 - no data Flood extent
cloud UINT 8 0 - no cloud, 1 - cloud, 2 - cloud shadow, 255 - no data Cloud mask

More information

More information about the C2S-MS Floods is described on the Source Cooperative (previously Radiant MLHub) and the methodology and workflow is outlined in the study.
