Use assets from storage

Use images from geospatial collections in a workflow.

Analytics platform discontinued after January 31, 2024

The current analytics platform will be discontinued after January 31, 2024, and will be replaced by new advanced processing functionalities. This change will affect projects, workflows, jobs, data blocks, processing blocks, and custom blocks. For more information, see the blog post.


To process images purchased from SPOT, Pléiades, and Pléiades Neo collections, you need to add them to a workflow using a specific data block called Processing from Storage.

If you used to use data blocks that are now unavailable as a source of data, use a corresponding catalog collection instead.

Step 1. Find an asset ID

Step 2. Check compatibility

Step 3. Add Processing from Storage

Step 4. Use an asset in a job

Step 1. Find an asset ID

  1. Open the console and go to Data management inline-icon Data management.
  2. To copy the ID, click Copy inline-icon in the line of a chosen asset.

Step 2. Check compatibility

Explore the capabilities of the chosen dataset to make sure it will work with the processing block you want to use.

  1. Go to the Analytics section of the marketplace.
  2. Select a processing block you're going to use.
  3. Scroll down to the Capabilities section and check the input parameters. Make sure that the chosen processing block supports the file format of your dataset.

Step 3. Add Processing from Storage

Processing from Storage is a data block that retrieves purchased files from storage so that you can use them in a workflow.

  1. Open the console, go to Projects inline-icon Projects, and select an existing project or create a new one.
  2. Select an existing workflow or create one.
  3. Add Processing from Storage as a data block and add the processing blocks you want to use.
  4. Click Update & Configure Job.

Step 4. Use an asset in a job

  1. After clicking Update & Configure Job you'll be redirected to the job configuration page. Scroll down to the Parameters section with a JSON schema.

  2. Paste the asset ID in the asset_ids field, for example:

    "asset_ids": ["c566b4f6-08c3-4ba6-b6eb-fba58dbfec00"]

    If you want to use several assets, separate them by a comma, for example:

    "asset_ids": [
  3. Don't adjust the geometric parameters of the processing block that follows. Click Run Job.
