The complete PlanetScope constellation of approximately 150 active satellites is able to image the entire land surface of Earth every day (equating to a daily collection capacity of 350 million km²/day). The constellation is constantly "on" and does not require ordering or acquisition planning.
PlanetScope satellite imagery is captured as a continuous strip of single frame images known as “scenes.”
Scenes may be acquired as a single RGB (red, green, blue) frame or a split-frame with a RGB half and a NIR (near-infrared) half depending on the capability of the satellite.
Planet offers three product lines for PlanetScope imagery: a Basic Scene product, an Ortho Scene product, and an Ortho Tile product. The Basic Scene product is a scaled Top of Atmosphere Radiance (at sensor) and sensor-corrected product. The Basic Scene product is designed for users with advanced image processing and geometric correction capabilities. The product is not orthorectified or corrected for terrain distortions. Ortho Scenes represent the single-frame image captures as acquired by a PlanetScope satellite with additional post processing applied. Ortho Tiles are multiple orthorectified scenes in a single strip that have been merged and then divided according to a defined grid.
