Item Properties

Property Name Description Type
_permissions Assets available for the item which the authenticated user has permission to download. array
geometry Geographic boundary of the item's footprint, formatted as a GeoJSON polygon. json
id Globally unique item identifier. string
abs_orbit_number Absolute orbit number. integer
acquired Timestamp that the item was captured. datetime
anomalous_pixels Percentage of pixels that may have errors. Represented spatially in the UDM. double
black_fill The percentage of the item containing black fill. double
cloud_cover Average percentage of cloud coverage. double
columns Number of columns in the image. integer
data_type The processing level of the product. string
datatake_id Unique identifier of the data take. string
epsg_code Ortho tile grid cell that the item is located in (not used if Scene). integer
granule_id Unique identifier of the granule PDI. string
gsd Ground sample distance - the distance between pixel centers as measured on the ground in meters. double
instrument Name of the satellite instrument used to collect the image. string
item_type Name of the item type. string
mgrs_grid_id The Military Grid Reference System (MGRS) ID. string
origin_x ULX coordinate of the extent of the data. The coordinate references the top left corner of the top left pixel. double
origin_y ULY coordinate of the extent of the data. The coordinate references the top left corner of the top left pixel. double

provider Name of the item provider (e.g. “planetscope”, ”rapideye”). string
published Timestamp that the item was published to the Planet API. datetime
quality_category Planet image quality metric: Standard or Test. To qualify for "standard" image quality an image must meet a variety of quality standards, for example: PAN motion blur less than 1.15 pixels, compression bits per pixel less than 3. If the image does not meet these criteria it is considered "test" quality. string
rel_orbit_number Relative orbit number (within the cycle). integer
rows Number of rows in the image. integer
s2_processor_version Version of the s2 processor. string
satellite_id Globally unique satellite identifier. string
sun_azimuth The angle of the sun, as seen by the observer, measured clockwise from the north (0 - 360). double
sun_elevation The angle of the sun above the horizon (0 - 90). double
updated Timestamp that the item record was last updated. datetime
usable_data Percentage of pixels that are usable, subtracting cloud cover and black fill. double
view_angle The satellite's across-track, off-nadir viewing angle. Positive numbers denote east, negative numbers denote west (-25 - +25). double
