Ordering

Purchase or process data directly from catalog search.


Introduction

This section will guide you through ordering various geospatial data in the Catalog. Please note that the ordering process is different for the two categories: Purchase and Processing.

Purchase: Ordering Images

The ordering process based on the Purchase category allows you to easily get Pléiades and SPOT 6/7 satellite images from both the long-term archive and online archive. The steps are described below.

1. Add images to cart

Add to cart
After adjusting the filters in the catalog, the search query will retrieve a list of available images on the left panel. Select the best images and add them to the cart.

2. View cart to see selected images

Click on View Cart, in order to visualize the preview of the selected image(s) and the estimated price of each image intersecting your AOI.

Please note that only the segment of the image that intersects your AOI will be considered in the pricing, not the entire AOI.

3. Preview selected images

Click on Preview in order to examine the overall visual quality of the image.

The order is officially placed and you are charged with UP42 credits. Delivery of the images can take a few minutes (online archive) or up to 24 hours (long-term archive).

6. Check order status

The status of an order is displayed in Storage. Click on Orders to see a list of your orders and the Status: In Progress or Completed.

If the Status is ‘Completed’, open the tab ‘Data’ and download the images from the column ‘Actions’.

Processing: integrate images into workflows

The Processing category returns data that can further be integrated into existing workflows and processed via job runs.

This process assumes that you already built workflows by following the steps 1-10 from the article Build the first UP42 Workflow.

3. Filters

catalog filters
After uploading/drawing the AOI, you can adjust the following filters: Date, Cloud Coverage, Usage Type and Data Source. In this case, the Usage Type is set to Processing.

The Processing category provides more Data Sources: Pléiades, SPOT 6/7, Sentinel-1, Sentinel-2, Sentinel-3 and Sentinel-5.

4. Add images to cart

Before including the image(s) in the workflow, click on View Parameters to view the geometry and the image filenames in JSON format.

8. Configure Job

view cart processing
Include the selected image(s) in your workflow by clicking on Configure Job. Images are grouped by data source and configure job applies to all of the images you have selected for that data source.

9. Choose Project/Workflow

The image will only be included in existing workflows, which are stored in your projects.

processing select workflow
First, your existing projects will be listed. Click on the desired project and a list of workflows will appear.

processing select workflow 2
Choose the workflow where you would like to include the image(s).

Please note that only compatible workflows will be displayed. In this example, if your workflow includes a different data block from Pléiades (SPOT 6/7, Sentinel-1, Sentinel-2 etc.), it will not be displayed in the list, because it is not compatible with the Pléiades images you selected in the Catalog. Since we already created a workflow Normalized Difference Vegetation Index based on a Pléiades data block, it is displayed in the list.

10. Job Configuration

Once you click on the workflow, you will be redirected to the job configuration window. The asset ID of the image is now integrated in the job parameters under the variable ids. The price will be estimated below the job parameters displayed in JSON format. Run the job and download the outputs according to steps 12-19 from the article Building your first workflow.

Congratulations! You successfully ordered images and ran jobs using data selected from the Catalog.
