I am writing this post because I want to know if there is any response parameter, API call or tool that you can use to know exactly how much quota will be consumed by my subscription.
Of course, I could calculate the area in sq kms using python or any other programming language but I am concerned about the rounding up errors, so I would like to get the exact value from Planet’s side before actually creating the subscription. I have noticed that in planet explorer there are tools that measure the area of your AOI but I will use the Subscription API to get data of my AOI for over long periods of time programmatically, so I will not use planet explorer.
Also, I have read that there is an API for generating reports, called the reports API, but the documentation about it was rather scarce (I do not know whether in the report the quota usage per subscription will be included as I cannot use it) and also these reports are generated after creating the subscriptions, so this does not answer my question either.
If anyone could help me, I’d be really grateful!
