The fastest and easiest way to access imagery is via direct Tile Pyramid
addressing. Data is arranged by product ID (with optional date/time
), zoom, column, and row:
Omitting the date and time will always return the latest available tiles for the given product ID. This can cause discontinuities in products with high refresh rates that update while tiles are being served.
Many tools can visualize tiled imagery via a formatted URL containing product (with optional date/time
), zoom, column, and row. For example, ArcGIS Online
, Google Maps API
(including mobile devices), Leaflet
, and many more.
