Tasking and SAR Data Access Release Notes - 28 July 2021

New Features

Existing Catalog Imagery Heatmap

A new heatmap map layer has been added at this release to visualize existing imagery in the Capella catalog. A heatmap is map layer that uses color-coding to represent different values. In this case, the colors are scaled from color --> color --> color --> color --> color to indicate the relative volume of imagery in the catalog at a given location. Blue means there are fewer images and red means there are more images. No color data is displayed where imagery does not exist in the catalog.


The heatmap map layer can be toggled on / off via the heatmap icon located at the top right of the map on the main search page (just below the 'Cart' icon):



When visible, the heatmap map layer makes it easier to find existing imagery data in the Capella catalog. The heatmap layer is dynamic, respects imagery catalog access and holdback settings and updates to reflect the current geographic search and attribute filter results:
