This block provides AOI-clipped versions of the imagery from the Pléiades sensor. Pléiades 1A/1B are very-high resolution twin satellites offering 0.5m resolution products. Currently supported are pan-sharpened RGB and the panchromatic band. The block is an easy-to-use starting point for analysis workflows needing high-resolution input data.

    Description

    Pléiades 1A/1B are very-high resolution twin satellites offering 0.5m resolution products. The constellation is highly reactive and has been designed for daily revisit anywhere on Earth, with stereo and tri-stereo capacity.

    This block provides AOI-clipped versions of the imagery from the Pléiades sensor. The output image contains all web Mercator tiles intersecting or covering the input AOI (depending on the geometric filter used) in a resolution defined by the used zoom level (see this link for the definition of zoom levels).

    The available output bands of the Pléiades block are: red, green, blue, and panchromatic (current version does not support NIR). The default behaviour is to only deliver RGB, the panchromatic band needs to be requested using a query parameter.

    Many analytics blocks cannot process the output of this block directly but need it to be pre-processed using the Tiling block. Please check the corresponding block descriptions.
