Task Collections
With access to our medium resolution Planetscope data and high-resolution Skysat data, customers can apply “tip and cue”methods, scanning for change in medium-res data, and using high-resolution SkySats to get a closer look.
Whether you want to perform targeted high-resolution collects, or image wide areas for mapping purposes, we can configure the SkySat constellation collections to suit your needs. Once a tasking ...
