How to Save Your Work

last updated: July 17, 2024

Start by searching for your imagery by creating an area of interest (AOI), either by drawing an AOI or by typing in a location in the Search panel. To find the Search panel, which can be found in the upper left hand corner, indicated by the magnifying glass icon.

Once the panel is open, you can select your cadence (i.e. daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly), choose filters and date ranges.

When you are happy with your selections, you will find a Save Search button above the search results.

When you click Save Search you will see a window appear where you can make some additional selections. You will name your search, and then make selections under Search Options and Search Parameters. The name of your Saved Search will default to the text you typed into the Search bar initially.

On the left hand side under Search Options, you have the option to enable or disable email notifications and also organize your search into a Folder. When selecting email notifications, email notifications are enabled when the toggle is teal. When the toggle is grey, the email notifications are disabled. * Note: these notifications are not affected by the Date Range Filter you specified - it applies to all new imagery within your AOI boundary.

You can create a new Folder to organize your searches by clicking typing in a name and clicking Add. Your search will be added to the Folder that is highlighted in teal.

Under Search Parameters you can verify your selected date range or omit an end date for your saved search. If you click No End Date you will always see the most recent imagery in your saved search. You can also verify the other parameters of your saved search. If any of these parameters are incorrect to you, click the x in the upper right hand corner and adjust in the Search panel.

To access Searches that you have Saved, click the icon just below the Search icon in the left-hand toolbar, called Saved Search.


If you have already Saved your Search, and wish to update it with new filter parameters, you can choose Update Search at the top (where Save Search text was initially).
