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.
The block provides Pléiades data in its original DIMAP format clipped to the provided AOI. The datasets are using geographic coordinates (EPSG:4326) and can be processed with the Data Format and Type conversion block or by specialised GIS/Remote Sensing Software. The available output bands of the Pléiades block are: red, green, blue, NIR (2m resolution) and panchromatic (0.5 m resolution). This block has a special feature: it is possible to order (and pay for) the data once and then run workflows using this data as often as needed. It is also possible to make a reliable data cost estimation using the Test Query feature.
Note: This is an Analytic imagery product that returns 4 bands (RGB, NIR) with 12 bits. Many analytics blocks cannot process the output of this block directly but need it to be pre-processed using the Pan-sharpening (UP42) block. Please check the corresponding block descriptions if they explicitly state that they can handle this type of data.

Pléiades Download block returns JPEG2000 & DIMAP format. To view it, open the DIMAP file or use the DIMAP -> GeoTIFF Conversion or Pan-sharpening SPOT/Pléiades blocks to produce GeoTIFF files. Do not open the JPEG2000 files directly as these may be geometrically transformed.
