"Deprecated" means we intend to remove the feature or capability from a future release. The feature or capability will continue to work and is fully supported until it is officially removed. This deprecation notification can span a few months or years. After removal, the feature or capability will no longer work. This notice is to allow you sufficient time to plan and update your code before the feature or capability is removed.

Deprecating PSScene3Band and PSScene4Band ⚠️

PSScene3Band and PSScene4Band item types will be deprecated on March 1, 2022 with plans to formally end-of-life the item types on January 31, 2023. In its place, Planet is introducing PSScene, a new item type that allows you to search and download all PlanetScope data in a unified way. PSScene provides the same PlanetScope 3-band and 4-band items as PSScene3Band and PSScene4Band item types, but allows users to search one item type for all available 3-band, 4-Band, and 8-Band assets. Using the PSScene data type, users can also access 8-band PlanetScope data at no additional cost. We recommend all customers begin today to migrate to the PSScene item type.

Begin using PSScene today.
