I feel there is a need to make the step from analyzing just a couple of eo images to analyzing hundreds or more images for many applications. Even local solutions involve many images. Building data cubes seems to be a good solution, I would like to hear what your experience is with (local) data cube environments or frameworks and Planet data!
Some exciting solutions are around, such as rasdaman, opendatacube, and gdalcubes. Google earth engine seems to be working, but I don’t think I get the code to deploy GEE on our infrastructure. However, so far, I haven’t found reading procedure for planet data, whereas the usual (and boring 😜) Sentinel and Landsat data seem to be supported out of the box.
It would be very interesting to get inspiration.
