New ✨

  • Orders UI refresh, making it easier to order assets
    • As you get used to the new look and feel, you can opt-out of this UI and revert back to the old UI via the Labs (see screenshot below)
    • The new interface removes the dropdown options and now has explicit listing of the available assets grouped by rectification (rectified vs unrectified)
    • You can select as many assets as desired, each selection will result in a separate order.
    • Each order can be configured individually with respect to file format, clipping, and selected items.
    • We will no longer modify the order name, the orders panel will give sufficient context as to what was ordered. The downloaded zip will follow the pattern of <order_name>_<item_type>_<bundleName>.zip

  • Snapshot Lab - this feature is only available for customers.
    • By turning on the Snapshot Lab you can download a JPEG image of your current Explorer screen with pre-embedded metadata.

Improvements 🙌🏻

  • You can now filter for standard quality imagery (which excludes test imagery).
    • If turned on, you will only see standard imagery
    • If turned off, both standard & test imagery is included in the search results

  • We've improved the way we display your basemap tile view usage. We will no longer display the usage bar, but will notify users when they are almost out of quota at approximately 80% consumption and when they have completely run out. There is also a new "My Usage" tab to view usage (access via Settings Panel).
