✨ New Cloud Filter Tool in the Subscriptions API ✨¶
Planet introduces a new Cloud Filter tool to the Subscriptions API. This new tool enables you to filter out imagery that exceeds customer provided Area of Interest cloud cover metadata thresholds.
For more information, refer to Subscriptions Tool.
✨ Subscriptions API Support for Planetary Variables ✨¶
This update provides support for our newest Planetary Variable, Forest Carbon Diligence 30 m, through the Subscriptions API.
You can subscribe to both raster and time series data. With this new feature, you have access to the data for the following:
- Forest Carbon Diligence 30 m
If you are interested in Forest Carbon Diligence 30 m, you can create a subscription and specify this new Planetary Variable source type. If you subscribe to Imagery, this update does not require additional action.
For more information, refer to Subscribing to Planetary Variables.
(Beta) Subscriptions API Google Earth Engine Delivery
A new delivery block
google_earth_engine is now supported. This integration allows you to create a subscription that will automatically deliver new imagery to your GEE account as it becomes available. This integration works very similarly to the Orders API Integration.

Updated Metadata if Using the Clip Tool in the Orders & Subscriptions API 🙌🏻¶
The Subscriptions API and Orders API update the contents of the metadata JSON file when the clip tool is used. Previously, the footprint in the delivered metadata was for the entire scene, even if the scene was clipped. Now, the footprint will be clipped to the clip Area of interest. Similarly, the UDM2 metadata values are now updated and relevant to the clipped Area of Interest. UDM2 metadata values are only updated if a UDM2 asset is included in the Orders bundle or Subscriptions "asset_list".
Path Prefix Support for the Subscriptions API
You can now use the path_prefix parameter in the Subscriptions API when you deliver subscriptions to one of our supported cloud storage providers. This is an optional string that will prepend to the files delivered to the bucket.
