Orders Overview

last updated: March 18, 2024

    The Planet Orders API enables ordering, customization, and delivery of imagery and Basemaps. While Data and Basemap APIs are useful for discovering imagery, Orders is the core API for ordering scenes and Basemaps in bulk, customizing with a suite of raster tools, and delivering as downloadable items for working in a local environment or to the cloud as optimized GeoTIFFs.
