Step 1. Get access

  1. Select a collection

    To review the specifications of catalog collections, see Catalog collections.

  2. Request access

    If you want to order the chosen collections for the first time, you need to request access to the collection. Your request will be reviewed in up to 3 working days. You will get an email once a decision has been reached. You can review your access request status on the Access requests page.

    After you have access, you won’t need to request access again.

  3. Accept EULAs

    If you want to order the chosen collections for the first time, you need to accept their end-user license agreement (EULA). If a EULA is updated, you need to re-accept it before creating your next order.

Step 2. Find and preview data

  1. Define geometry

    1. Check limitations for catalog collections and the types of geometry the selected collections accept as input.
    2. Check that your geometry is valid for a catalog order.
    3. Open the console and go to Catalog inline-icon Catalog.
    4. Add your geometry.
  2. Configure your order

    If you want to specify a date, maximum cloud coverage, or search for specific collections, click Filters to set up the following search parameters:

    • Acquisition date: an acquisition date range.
    • Maximum cloud coverage: the maximum percentage of clouds covering a full scene, from 0 to 100.
    • Collections: geospatial collections included in the search.
  3. Select data products

    1. Select a collection. To view more full scenes, click See all images.
    2. Hover over a full scene to view the intersection with your geometry on the basemap.
    3. Select a full scene. Note asset delivery time. If a quicklook is available, you can see how it appears over your geometry and the basemap. Some quicklooks may not fully match the scene they represent.
    4. Select one or several data products and click Add to Cart. If needed, select and add data products from other full scenes to your cart.

Step 3. Create an order

Credits will be deducted upon successful completion of the created catalog order. The transaction can’t be reversed.

  1. To view or remove the selected data products, click View Cart.
  2. In the cart, view the selected data products and the total credits that will be deducted. To proceed, click Checkout. You won’t be charged at this step.
  3. In the order summary, check the following:
    • Selected data products
    • Available credit balance
    • Total credits that will be deducted
    • Final credit balance
  4. To create the order, click Order for [the amount of] Credits.

Step 4. Monitor orders

Monitor the status and the readiness of your order.

Step 5. Download assets

The following statuses mean you can download assets from storage:

  • In progress: some order assets might have been delivered.
  • Completed: all order assets have been delivered.
