Use assets from storage

Use images from geospatial collections in a workflow.


To process images purchased from a catalog or tasking collection, 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.

Follow these steps to process assets from storage:

  1. Find an asset ID.
  2. Check compatibility.
  3. Add Processing from Storage.
  4. Use an asset in a workflow.

Find an asset ID

  1. Go to Storage icon StorageData.
  2. To copy the ID, click Copy icon in the line of a chosen asset.

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.

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. Go to Projects 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.

Use an asset in a workflow

  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.
