In a nutshell

You subscribe to a part of the land (i.e. agriculture parcel) and get, for a period of one year, access to all available PlanetScope data in that area - both archive and fresh data. This subscription model is perfect for agriculture and other continuous monitoring use-cases.

More details

  • The price of the annual subscription depends on the country, where one wants to download the data from. See Billing for more information about Tiers.
  • Users can purchase a quota in packages of 100 hectares for each of the Tiers. This quota can be consumed for several dislocated areas (parcels), each area having the minimum size of 1 hectare.
  • Subscription period starts at the time of the first purchase and lasts for 12 months since then.
  • In case the User requires additional quota, they can purchase it at any time during the year (“Top-up”). Consecutive purchases are co-termed with the original purchase (price is proportional to the remaining period). During the last three months of the suscription period, it is required to subscribe for one additional year.
  • In case the User consumes more data than they have subscribed to, there is a 20% overage fee. We therefore kindly recommend to purchase the quota up-front.
  • The total “area under management” is defined as “the area of union of all polygons used in the orders within a period of one year”.

Follow up questions

Q: If I order the data for a polygon A today and then once again for the same polygon a week from now. Do I consume quota twice? A: No. As long as you are fetching the data from the same polygon, you will only consume once the area of the polygon.

Q: If I order the data for polygon A today, then increase the polygon a bit (polygon A’). How much quota will I consume? A: As long as the polygon A is fully within polygon A’, you will consume the total area of polygon A’ (“union of polygons” rule)

Q: If I purchase 100 hectares today and another 100 hectares in 6 months, how much will I pay? A: Your first purchase will be for the full price, second one with 50% discount (as it will only cover the period of 6 months).
