New (ish) ✨¶
- Orders v2 is now the sole provider of orders in Explorer for all users.
- As announced last week, only those users that are part of the Beta Clipping + Raster Ops Program will have the ability to clip via the UI. For help with this please reach out in #product-support as it is not managed by Explorer.
- With the release of Orders v2 in Explorer comes the deprecation of the Orders v0 UI
- All orders previously made with orders v0 can be accessed via the account page for download and/or the API
Planet is improving its algorithm for calculating Surface Reflectance in PlanetScope and RapidEye products. Planet is also now producing
analytic_sr assets under the existing
REOrthoTile item types.
The new Surface Reflectance algorithm should help reduce scene-to-scene difference due to rapidly varying atmospheric conditions. Reference the updated white paper on the support page: https://support.planet.com/hc/en-us/articles/360012629573-Planet-Surface-Reflectance-Product
analytic_sr assets are available under the existing
REOrthoTile items listed in the Dev Center: https://developers.planet.com/docs/data/items-assets/
Validation on allowed geometries when submitting a GeoJSON file is now enabled. For example, multipolygons or 3D objects are not supported.
Visualising area orders are now automatically tessellated and displayed on order creation:
- Data API now returns a list of supported asset types for each item type in all GET item_types calls. This field lists the set of asset types which may be produced for a given item type. You can reference this change in our API reference documentation here: https://developers.planet.com/docs/apis/data/reference/#operation/ListItemTypes
- 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.
- 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”
