Planet QGIS Plugin

Improvements 🙌🏻

The new Planet QGIS Plugin provides the following enhancements:

  • Customers can access the new publishing stage filters for PlanetScope data. The filters provide the ability to see even more available PlanetScope imagery in your Area of Interest (AOI). More details on the publishing stage filters are available in, Items & Assets.

  • Customers can apply a composite tool at order checkout. The composite tool seamlessly arranges scenes to produce a reduced number of images with minimal or no overlap. By eliminating unnecessary overlaps within the imagery, the overall area covered in the delivered imagery for an AOI or strip is decreased.

Note: The PSOrthoTile Item Types are deprecated and have been removed from this version of the Planet QGIS Plugin.
