Planet Labs’ core products come from high-resolution satellite images that are offered as individual Scenes or composited Mosaics.
Scenes are images as they are captured from the satellite and are available in two different product formats: visual and analytic. Mosaics are single-layer composites of a large region that has been intelligently crafted from Scenes.
Metadata about each product (scene or mosaic) is available to assist in analyzing or further processing. All Planet Labs images are corrected for radiometric and sensor distortions.
We provide access to our imagery archive through our API and platforms: Scenes Explorer and Mosaic Explorer. In addition to PlanetScope and RapidEye data, our API also provides access to Landsat 8 imagery.
