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.
