After tasking orders have been entered into the Tasking Dashboard and Planet has started collecting imagery, you can download captures quite easily.
1. Open any tasking order from the Tasking Dashboard
2. Click on the 'Captures' tab and select the capture you would like to download.
3. In the capture view, select 'View in Explorer'.
4. Log in to Planet Explorer to see the capture of interest.
5. An order can be placed right away by clicking on 'Order Scenes' on the bottom of the page.
Note: This is a manual way to order SkySat captures. Users can also order via Orders API - please see here.
