How to Access Data

The collection is available worldwide upon approval of the data access request, authorised after successful identity or eligibility check (within 2 days) through Fast Approval Registration.

The products are available for download via the ESA Third Party Missions (TPM) dedicated dissemination service and catalogue the data is collection based and allows data browse and download through the treeview as well as via geographical search using a clickable zoom map.

Description

The PlanetScope ESA archive collection consists of PlanetScope products requested by ESA supported projects over their areas of interest around the world and that ESA collected over the years. The dataset regularly grows as ESA collects new products.

Three product lines for PlanetScope imagery are offered, for all of them the Ground Sampling Distance at nadir is 3.7 m (at reference altitude 475 km).

EO-SIP Product Type Product description Processing Level
PSC_DEF_S3 3 bands – Analytic and Visual - Basic and Ortho Scene level 1B and 3B
PSC_DEF_S4 4 bands – Analytic and Visual - Basic and Ortho Scene level 1B and 3B
PSC_DEF_OT 3 bands, 4 bands and 5 bands – Analytic and Visual - Ortho Tile level 3A

 

  • The Basic Scene product is a single-frame scaled Top of Atmosphere Radiance (at sensor) and sensor-corrected product. The product is not orthorectified or corrected for terrain distortions, radiometric and sensor corrections are applied to the data.
  • The Ortho Scenes product is a single-frame scaled Top of Atmosphere Radiance (at sensor) or Surface Reflectance image product. The product is radiometrically, sensor and geometrically corrected and is projected to a cartographic map (UTM/WGS84).
  • The Ortho Tiles are multiple orthorectified scenes in a single strip that have been merged and then divided according to a defined grid. Radiometric and sensor corrections are applied, the imagery is orthorectified and projected to a UTM projection.
