Planet QGIS Plugin

The Planet QGIS Plugin provides access to Planet’s satellite imagery directly from QGIS.

To order Planet imagery for use in QGIS, specify the area of interest (AOI) and the filters in your search. Also, you can discover and stream Planet Basemaps, and send tasking coordinates to Planet's Tasking Dashboard for high-resolution, on-demand imagery captures.
