Hello,

 

I would like to know how exactly are handled the dubious pixels of the PlanetScope 8 bands in the UDM mask (8th band of the UDM2 mask)

Indeed, in the specification, it looks like only the first 5 bands are handled.

Am I missing something ?

 

Best,

Hi Rémi,

Thanks for the question, I see the documentation (page 96-97) needs to be updated. In the meantime, a succinct description of each bit in the UDM mask for SuperDove is below.

Best,

Amit

 

Bit 0 Black fill
Bit 1 Likely cloud
Bit 2 Blue (Band 2) is anomalous

Bit 4 Red (Band 6) is anomalous
Bit 5 Red Edge (Band 7) is anomalous
Bit 6 NIR (Band 😎 is anomalous
Bit 7 Coastal Aerosol (Band 1) and/or Green-I (Band 3) and/or Yellow (Band 5) is anomalous
