The cloud-native asset model (CNAM) format transforms an UP42 asset from a tasking or a catalog order into individual geospatial features available for immediate download. Regardless of provider or delivery format, UP42 transforms assets into a standard model. CNAM also standardizes the following types of files to enable easier integrations:
- Raster data is converted into cloud optimized GeoTIFFS (COGs).
- Vector mask files are converted into GeoJSONs.
- Open the console and go to Storage.
- To find assets ordered by other account users, click My account. Otherwise, stay in My workspace.
- Select an asset.
- Go to Scene list and select a scene.
- Click in the line of a chosen file.
The files are tagged to make them easier to distinguish. To learn more about available roles, see STAC assets.
CNAM is only available for assets added to storage starting in 2023.
Not all geospatial collections are supported. To get a list of supported collections, see Introduction to STAC.
