blue arrow DESCRIPTION

PlanetScope is a constellation composed by more than 120 optical satellites (also named Doves) operated by Planet.

The PlanetScope Level 1B Basic Scene and Level 3B Ortho Scene full archive products are available as part of Planet imagery offer.

The PlanetScope Basic Scene product is a Scaled Top of Atmosphere Radiance (at sensor) and sensor corrected product, without correction for any geometric distortions inherent in the imaging processes and is not mapped to a cartographic projection. The imagery data is accompanied by Rational Polynomial Coefficients (RPCs) to enable orthorectification by the user.

This kind of product is designed for users with advanced image processing and geometric correction capabilities.

Product Components and Format: 

  • Image File (GeoTIFF format), Metadata File (XML format), Rational Polynomial Coefficients (XML format), Thumbnail File (GeoTIFF format), Unusable Data Mask UDM, File (GeoTIFF format), Usable Data Mask UDM2 File (GeoTIFF format)
  • Bands: 3-band natural color (red, green, blue) or 4-band multispectral image (blue, green, red, near-infrared)
  • Ground Sampling Distance (nadir): 3.7 m (average at reference altitude 475 km)
  • Accuracy: <10 m RMSE

The PlanetScope Ortho Scene product is radiometrically-, sensor- and geometrically- corrected and is projected to a cartographic map projection. The geometric correction uses fine Digital Elevation Models (DEMs) with a post spacing of between 30 and 90 meters.

Product Components and Format:

  • Image File (GeoTIFF format), Metadata File (XML format), Thumbnail File (GeoTIFF format), Unusable Data Mask UDM, File (GeoTIFF format), Usable Data Mask UDM2 File (GeoTIFF format)
  • Bands: 3-band natural color (red, green, blue)
  • Ground Sampling Distance (nadir): 3.7 m (average at reference altitude 475 km)
  • Projection: UTM WGS84Accuracy: <10 m RMSE
  • PlanetScope Visual Ortho Scene product is orthorectified and color-corrected (using a colour curve) 3-band RGB Imagery. This correction attempts to optimize colors as seen by the human eye providing images as they would look if viewed from the perspective of the satellite
  • PlanetScope Analytic Ortho Scene product is orthorectified, 4-band BGRN Imagery with geometric, radiometric and atmospheric correction. This data is optimal for value-added image processing such as land cover classifications.

Product Components and Format:

  • Image File (GeoTIFF format), Metadata File (XML format), Thumbnail File (GeoTIFF format), Unusable Data Mask UDM, File (GeoTIFF format), Usable Data Mask UDM2 File (GeoTIFF format)
  • Bands: 3-band multispectral image (red, green, blue) or 4-band multispectral image (blue, green, red, near-infrared)
  • Ground Sampling Distance (nadir): 3.7 m (average at reference altitude 475 km)
  • Projection: UTM WGS84
  • Accuracy: <10 m RMSE
