I have recently begun accessing Planet data through the Planet Explorer interface. I am most interested in the Planet Basic imagery. These are the images that have not yet been orthorectified. For nearly all scenes I see the Analytic and Visual products, but not the Basic. Is there something I need to do to make this option available?
Planet's regular accounts only have access to the visual and analytic imagery options. The basic imagery formats are reserved for more advanced users. Your best best is to contact Planet support with a description of what you are trying to do and ask for access to basic with your account.
