How can I find/order Image Scene which I see in Basemap using QGIS?

Yes, you can. In the Planet QGIS Plugin v2.0 users get a tool Planet Inspector panel. The Planet Inspector panel allows you to: select a location on a Planet Basemap and identify the source scene for that location. It gives you the option "Open in Explorer" using which you can order the scene.

  • Open QGIS & Login to Planet Explorer plug-in
  • Select the Basemaps tab
