New ✨

  • We heard that you missed the Satellite layer when viewing imagery. We now have an option to turn it on!
    • We’ve added a new menu that allows you to toggle a Satellite view as well as the Street labels.

Improvements 🙌🏻

  • The Filters panel has gotten a face-lift, amongst other improvements
    • There are new grouped categories and they can be collapsed so that it is easier to navigate and see just what you want or need.
    • The sliders now have a way to enter the values via a text field
    • The instrument filter now uses checkboxes, so that it is easier to select more than one instrument at a time.
    • You can reset the filters to the default values by clicking “Clear All”
    • In order to apply the filters you must click on “Apply Filters”

New ✨

  • We now have a top navigation with easier access to common help items.
    • You can find links to Planet’s Help Center, What’s New, take a contextual tour, view our Terms of Service and/or Submit Feedback.
    • All of these things used to be spread throughout the application and now have a more centralized home.
  • A cleaner base layer when an AOI is drawn to highlight the selected imagery better

Improvements 🙌🏻

  • A better way to specify the time interval of interest in the results panel
    • This used to be a dropdown, it is now a series of toggle buttons where the options are visible “up-front”
  • The filters, date filter, sort options, and saving/updating a search actions are now closer together and easier to find
    • With this change we no longer have “quick-filters”, all filters can be accessed via the “Filters” button
  • The sort menu now has a pop-up menu with the options, this is in preparation to bring more sorting options as we improve the application.
  • We’ve added an empty state message in the sidebar when a user does not have access to certain basemaps, to avoid having an empty and sad panel
  • The low resolution message is now a dismissible notification, rather than occupying space on the sidebar (this only applies to users with limited access)
  • Super-Dove (PSB.SD) filter is now an option for all users and no longer requires a lab

Bug Fixes 🐛

  • Spacebar toggle now works as expected, regardless of last area selected.
