"Deprecated" means we intend to remove the feature or capability from a future release. The feature or capability will continue to work and is fully supported until it is officially removed. This deprecation notification can span a few months or years. After removal, the feature or capability will no longer work. This notice is to allow you sufficient time to plan and update your code before the feature or capability is removed.
Previous generation of Doves (instrument ids PS2 and PS2.SD) imaging turned off¶
On March 1, 2022 Planet released the next generation of Planet Scope images that consist of near daily 8-band imagery. Planet has been maintaining near-daily 8-band coverage coverage since August, 2021. With the recent successful launch of 44 8-band Doves, Planet has made the decision to turn off imaging with the previous generation of Doves (Instrument ids PS2 and PS2.SD) that only consists of 4-Bands (RGBNIR). The goal is to optimize for 8-band coverage and allocate all available ground station resources to improve publication time of 8-band imagery.

UDM and UDM2 files for SkySatScene and SkySatCollect items now set to clear for Panchromatic without Multispectral coverage
UDM and UDM2 assets for SkySatScene and SkySatCollect item types have been slightly adjusted to include data values where we have Panchromatic but no Multispectral coverage, resulting in no cloud mask information. These areas, previously marked as
nodata, are now to be marked as valid, with a cloud classification of
clear with a confidence of
1 (the lowest).
