From the post:
Our imagery processing pipeline is live! You can search the Landsat 8 imagery catalog, filter by date and cloud coverage, then select any image. The image is instantly processed, assembling bands and correcting colors, and loaded into our API. Within minutes you will have an email with a link to the API end point that can be loaded into any web or mobile application.
Our goal is to make it fast for anyone to find imagery for a news story after a disaster, easy for any planner to get the the most recent view of their city, and any developer to pull in thousands of square KM of processed imagery for their precision agriculture app. All directly using our API
There are two ways to get started: via the imagery browser fetch.astrodigital.com, or directly via the the Search and Publish APIs. All API documentation is on astrodigital.com/api. You can either use the API to programmatically pull imagery though the pipeline or build your own UI on top of the API, just like we did.
The API provides direct access to more than 300TB of satellite imagery from Landsat 8. Early next year we’ll make our own imagery available once our own Landmapper constellation is fully commissioned.
Hit us up @astrodigitalgeo or sign up at astrodigital.com to follow as we build. Huge thanks to our partners at Development Seed who is leading our development and for the infinitively scalable API from Mapbox.
If you are interested in Earth images, you really need to check this out!
I haven’t tried the API but did get a link to an image of my city and surrounding area.
Definitely worth a long look!
