I've always been a bit confused about what's available and what i'm looking at with Planet services.
Below are 3 renderings of the same Planet scene:
1) A custom application using my Planet account sign in; rendered as an xyz tileset in a web browser.
2) Thru Planet Explorer.
3) In yesterday's Washington Post website.
I was surprised to see the rendering thru my custom app looks slightly better than what Planet Explorer renders. Both should be 3m. Can you explain?
At the same time, Planet Explorer allowed zooming to a higher level (14) than my custom app (12). In my app, once i zoom to level 13, the Planet image disappears.
The Washington Post image looks best. It was my understanding that downloading an image did not add any visual enhancement to an image and that it should have looked the same or similar as the xyz tileset. Can you say how they created this better resolution? Or did they enhance outside of Planet?
Thanks for clarifying,
