I was wondering how the basemaps, especially the bi-annual basemaps up untill september 2020, are compiled. Are the pixels/images selected based on a quality assesment, or is the median / mean used? If I know this, I can make a better assesment on what period / situation the basemaps represent.

I'm sharing the NICFI Basemap Product Specification document, In page 4 you can find the details about basemap production algorithm. Here is the link:

Hope this helps!
