Planet’s core products are derived from medium-to-high resolution imagery that is packaged into individual Scenes or as composite mosaics, known as Basemaps. We provide access to our imagery through our API and Planet Explorer platform.
Scenes are the images as captured by our satellites. Basemaps are composites of Scenes over a large area, and are available as monthly and quarterly compiled products.
Metadata about each of our products is included with each download to assist in further analysis or processing. All Planet images are corrected for radiometric and sensor distortions.
