Why Isn’t the Clip Tool Available for a Basic Scene in Planet Explorer?

The basic scene does not have a correction for any geometric distortions, therefore, a cartographic projection can not be assigned. You can download a basic scene from Planet Explorer, however, you will need to do the geometric corrections yourself, to accurately locate image pixels in the proper planimetric location, this correction must be applied to the entire scene, consequently, this type of asset can not be clipped in Planet Explorer and you will need to download it as a whole.

Clip tool is not available for this type of assets
