New ✨

Orders API now supports Planet Basemaps

With the Orders API, users can now apply raster tools like clip, bandmath, reproject, and merge to Planet Basemaps, and have them delivered along side with sourcetrace and UDM2 metadata to Planet’s support cloud storage locations.

Customers who have a plan that enables access to Planet Basemaps can take advantage of this new feature. NICFI Basemaps can only be ordered from the Orders API by those with Level 2 NICFI access.
