Is there any provision to get the overlapping area with the PlanetScope Image through API

We want to programatically download the PlanetScope data for either specific dates or date range. So, is there any provision currently to download a tile which has the maximum overlapping area with our shape/polygon on same date.
For example i have attached the screenshot of two Planet Images of the same day. We would want to download the second one rather than first one.

Hi Naresh,

On the search results there’s each product geometry in GeoJson so this functionality can be easily replicated with libraries such as Shapely using shape.intersection for Python or turf.js for JavaScript.

If you need more details I’ll be happy to provide them.
