Additional STAC Metadata

The STAC Metadata output from the Orders API has been updated with additional fields:

  • Items now have a created property with the original publication date time for the imagery, aligning with the core STAC metadata fields.
  • Item assets now have eo:bands metadata with band names and descriptions.
  • Item assets now have raster:bands metadata with data type, β€œnodata” values, resolution, statistics, and calibration coefficients.
  • Items assets now have roles describing their intended purpose.

The published field is now considered deprecated, but will remain available until the next release to give implementations time to switch over to created.
