Pléiades Display (Streaming)
Pléiades imagery in GeoTIFF format. Pan-sharpened RGB and panchromatic (0.5 m) bands.
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 Streaming version does not support NIR). The default behaviour is to only deliver RGB, the panchromatic band needs to be requested using a query parameter.
Note: This is a
Visual imagery product that returns 3 bands (RGB) with 8 bits. Many analytics blocks cannot process the output of this block directly but need it to be pre-processed using the Raster Tiling (UP42) block. Please check the corresponding block descriptions.

Internal Use: For customers who are using this block to perform their daily operations, and keep the dataset and all derivatives for internal use only.
Streaming vs. Download: This block is a Streaming block which does not allow downloading or storing the original images, only the analytics results. This page describes the differences in more detail.
