Creating a map

To create a map, you must complete a few simple tasks:

  1. Select a data source;
  2. Select a processing type;
  3. Set the time range

Setting a time range

In order to give the desired data or time interval, the where field, located on the settings panel, is used. To define the parameters, it is enough to click on the calendar icon and set the needed dates or enter the parameter value manually in one of the supported formats (see hint)
Attention: When selecting a specific date (for example, the current day), images from sources may not be present for a certain part of the Earth’s surface.

Additionally, if a time interval is being used in the display, then you can determine the overlay order of the images. Three overlay modes are available:

1. First - images are shown in order from earliest to latest within the given time interval (the early images are on top)

2. Last - images are shown in order from latest to earliest within the given time interval (the later images are on top)

3. Best - the best of what is available. In this case, the image display order is set depending on a combination of various parameters, including percentage of cloud cover, coverage area, quality, etc.

4. To change the image overlay order, the Order parameter is used.

Parameter of query: order
The result can include lots of images. To optimize it you can set up an order of choosing and combining of images.
You can choose amongst the following parameters like first, last or best.
order=first

After selecting operations and sources and setting the desired parameters, the only thing left is to get the generated link as requested by clicking the GET THE URL button.

Use this tile server URL in your application as a template with any standard mapping libraries like Leaflet, Mapbox, Google Map, and Open Layers.

Important! You need to get API key and replace {APIKEY} with your personal one.
