Whenever i do an HTTP request for Landsat data with the following filter:

filter = {
'intersects': geojson.dumps(
'acquired.gte': datetime(2016, 01, 8, 10, 00, 00).isoformat(),
'acquired.lte': datetime(2016, 01, 8, 11, 00, 00).isoformat(),
'cloud_cover.estimated.gte': 0,
'cloud_cover.estimated.lte': 100

I get a response with three times the same scene. I.e. 'count' == 3, but all the three scenes are the same.

Is this a known issue?

  • is this API currently in beta testing, as suggested by planet.com/explorers? If so the best option is probably to use whatever beta forums that Planet Labs have set up Commented Feb 25, 2016 at 10:47

    In their webpage they suggest to use the GIS StackExchange to post technical questions: support.planet.com/hc/en-us/articles/…

  • fair enough. It sounds like an awesome idea, product and approach, and I love that they're already engaging with Stack Exchange. I might have to sign up too! Commented Feb 25, 2016 at 19:53

There was an issue with some Landsat images being indexed multiple times but these duplicates have been removed.
