Planet Explorer has a mechanism for notifying users when there are new images in an area of interest. To receive these messages, you must first create a saved search and then turn on notifications.
First, you will need to create an area of interest (AOI) inside Planet Explorer. This can be done by drawing a single point or a polygon, or by uploading a GeoJSON geometry.
Next, set the time of interest (TOI).
Edit filters if desired.
Save the search
This saves the AOI, TOI and designated filters. Make sure to select the enable notifications toggle while saving your search.
Editing and updating saved searches
If you would like to make changes in the future, locate the search in your saved searches and change your parameters with the UPDATE SEARCH button.
