BigEarthNet v2.0 Pretrained Model Weights

We provide weights for several different pretrained models. The model weights for the best-performing model, based on the macro average precision score on the recommended test split, have been uploaded. All models have been trained using: i) BigEarthNet-S1 data only (S1), ii) BigEarthNet-S2 data only (S2), or iii) both BigEarthNet-S1 and -S2 (S1+S2) together.

The following bands were used to train the models:

  • For models using BigEarthNet-S1 only: Sentinel-1 bands ["VH", "VV"]
  • For models using BigEarthNet-S2 only: Sentinel-2 10m bands and 20m bands ["B02", "B03", "B04", "B08", "B05", "B06", "B07", "B11", "B12", "B8A"]
  • For models using BigEarthNet-S1 and -S2: Sentinel-2 10m bands and 20m bands and Sentinel-1 bands = ["B02", "B03", "B04", "B08", "B05", "B06", "B07", "B11", "B12", "B8A", "VH", "VV"]

The multi-hot encoded output of the model indicates the predicted multi-label output. The multi-hot encoded output relates to the following class labels sorted in alphabetical order:
['Agro-forestry areas', 'Arable land', 'Beaches, dunes, sands', 'Broad-leaved forest', 'Coastal wetlands', 'Complex cultivation patterns', 'Coniferous forest', 'Industrial or commercial units', 'Inland waters', 'Inland wetlands', 'Land principally occupied by agriculture, with significant areas of natural vegetation', 'Marine waters', 'Mixed forest', 'Moors, heathland and sclerophyllous vegetation', 'Natural grassland and sparsely vegetated areas', 'Pastures', 'Permanent crops', 'Transitional woodland, shrub', 'Urban fabric']

To use the model, download the codes that define the model architecture from the official BigEarthNet v2.0 (reBEN) repository and load the model with the corresponding weights using the code below. Note that configilm is a requirement to use the code below.

from reben_publication.BigEarthNetv2_0_ImageClassifier import BigEarthNetv2_0_ImageClassifier

model = BigEarthNetv2_0_ImageClassifier.from_pretrained(


from reben_publication.BigEarthNetv2_0_ImageClassifier import BigEarthNetv2_0_ImageClassifier

model = BigEarthNetv2_0_ImageClassifier.from_pretrained(
