Description

This data from Planet labs Inc. SkySat satellites was collected for the experimental "Skybox for Good Beta" program in 2015, as well as for various crisis response events and a few other projects. The data is available in both a 5-band Multispectral/Pan collection, and a Pansharpened RGB collection.

Each image's asset ID contains the acquisition date and time, for example, image s01_20150304T080608Z was acquired on March 4, 2015 at 08:06 Zulu (UTC). For more information, please see the Planet Imagery Product Specifications and visit the Planet Imagery and Archive site.

This RGB collection contains images with three pansharpened, 8-bit bands. The resolution is approximately 0.8m per pixel (closer to 1m for off-nadir images).
