Glossary

Choose data offerings from the glossary using the API.


Overview

The glossary provides information on data offerings, including IDs, descriptions, and other details about collections, data products, producers, and hosts. It helps you create tasking or catalog orders.

Collections

Collections are geospatial datasets with tasking or archive imagery.

To get a list of all available geospatial collections with metadata, call the Get geospatial collections endpoint. If a collection has "isIntegrated": true in its payload, you can order it using the API.

Data products

Data products are a type of imagery with a specific geometric and radiometric processing level and file format. All collections have different data products corresponding to their technical specifications.

To get a list of all available data products with metadata, call the Get data products endpoint. If a data product has "isIntegrated": true in its payload, you can order it using the API.

Producers

Data producers are companies that initially acquire and process the source data. Data acquired by a producer can be distributed to various hosts.

To get a list of all available data producers with metadata, call the Get data producers endpoint.
