Values info

PREVIEW=0

Only high resolution data from Sentinel-2 is used. This corresponds to real world distances up to 200m/pixel.

PREVIEW=1

Up to 200m/pixel it displays the same data as would PREVIEW=0. In addition to this it uses lower resolution data for real world distances up to 1500m/pixel.

With resolutions less than 200m/pixel (e.g. between 200m/pixel - 1500m/pixel) cloud filtering is no longer applied.

PREVIEW=2

Up to 1500m/pixel it displays the same data as would PREVIEW=1. With resolutions higher than 1500m/pixel it limits the data to 1 month prior to "TO" date.

With resolutions less than 200m/pixel (e.g. between 200m/pixel - 1500m/pixel and more) cloud filtering is no longer applied.
