We have a new way for you to share your Explorer session with others. The days of long URLs are over! You will notice that we no longer update the URL as you take different actions in the application or as data loads. We have added a way to generate a share link via a new "Share Session" button (see screenshot), this link contains the same information as our "old" long URLs but in a more compact form.

  • When searching for imagery, customers will now see only imagery they have access to, by default. If you would like to see Planet's entire catalog (including imagery you don't have access to), you can click the "View Entire Catalog" toggle in the search results and filters panel.
  • Color enhancements are now faster and smoother. The auto-enhancement feature is now in the same panel as sliders to adjust for brightness, contrast, and saturation. These tools work for Basemaps and Hosted Data Scenes.
