English abstract:
Validation of soil moisture observations from remote sensing platforms is quickly becoming a routine task as operational soil moisture products continue to be developed. Despite this, there are no agreed upon validation procedures or open source implementations of common tasks and methods. This makes the reproduction of scientific results difficult, especially since it is not yet common that software is include in publications. The presented work aims to improve this situation by showing an open source toolbox that makes it easy to perform common validation tasks. This toolbox is also used as the backend of a web application that aims to simplify the comparison of different validation methods.
