Cloud Masking and Image Download for PlanetScope Imagery in Google Earth Engine

  • 13 November 2023

'm relatively new to the Planet API, having engaged with it for just over a week. Following the GEE-Integration guide, I've successfully exported data to Google Earth Engine. Now, I'm working on cloud masking for a cloud-free composite using the asset type "ortho_analytic_4b_sr" and the scene "PSScene". I have around 122 images in the collection. I've come across "udm2" for cloud masking but I'm uncertain about its implementation. Also, once the requirements are met, could you guide me on downloading it? I'm unclear on parameters such as scale and maxPixel; my attempt to download a single image seemed off from the expected result.

Appreciate your assistance.
