Four new mosaics for California


We are excited to release four California mosaics on the Planet Platform Beta, composited fully from our recently released Open California dataset. This means the mosaics themselves are also available under the CC-BY-SA 4.0 license.


Easily search a mosaic, browse tiles and metadata

All four mosaics are accessible through the API and Mosaics Explorer Web Application. They can be downloaded as ‘quads’ for use offline and as a globally cached tile server. See the mosaics tiles section of the developer docs for more information.

More details about the California mosaics below. In this post you can read more about Planet’s “best-pixel mosaicking” process.
