The processing tool TREX, standing for 'Tool for Raster data EXploration' is presented and evaluated in the Biebrza wetlands in northeastern Poland. TREX was designed for the automatization of processing satellite data from the Proba-V satellite into maps of NDVI or LAI in any defined by the user projection, spatial resolution, or extent. The open source and access concept of TREX encourages the potential community of users to collaborate, develop, and integrate the tool with other satellite imagery and models. TREX reprojects, shifts, and resamples original data obtained from the Proba-V satellite to deliver reliable maps of NDVI and LAI. Validation of TREX in Biebrza wetlands resulted in correlations between 0.79 and 0.92 for NDVI data (measured with ASD Field Spec 4) and 0.92 for LAI data (measured with LiCOR-LAI-2000 Plant Canopy Analyzer).
