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?

    Scott, could you add detail on specific items that are missing basic assets? Ideally a complete url to the item. – Frank Warmerdam Mar 1 '17 at 5:31
  • Hi Frank, An example item would be 20160902_202028_0e14. I'm not sure how to get the link, but hopefully that gives you enough to start. Thank you very much for your help. – Scott Mar 1 '17 at 18:35

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.

  • Thank you very much for the suggestion. I have emailed Planet support and asked them if, perhaps, I do not have access. – Scott Mar 1 '17 at 17:28

    Indeed, this was the issue. The awesome folks at Planet support updated my account settings and it seems to be working great now. – Scott Mar 2 '17 at 17:45
