tThis paper shows the first comparison between data from Sentinel-2 (S2) Multi Spectral Instrument (MSI)and Landsat 8 (L8) Operational Land Imager (OLI) headed up to greenhouse detection. Two closely relatedin time scenes, one for each sensor, were classified by using Object Based Image Analysis and RandomForest (RF). The RF input consisted of several object-based features computed from spectral bands andincluding mean values, spectral indices and textural features. S2 and L8 data comparisons were alsoextended using a common segmentation dataset extracted form VHR World-View 2 (WV2) imagery totest differences only due to their specific spectral contribution. The best band combinations to performsegmentation were found through a modified version of the Euclidian Distance 2 index. Four differentRF classifications schemes were considered achieving 89.1%, 91.3%, 90.9% and 93.4% as the best overallaccuracies respectively, evaluated over the whole study area.
