Planet-Mosaic-Quads-Download-CLI

PyPI version DOI

Planet creates global monthly mosaics apart from creating mosaics at different frequencies, monthly mosaics are of interest to a lot of people who would like to do a consistent time series analysis using these mosaics and would like to apply them to an existing analytical pipeline. I created this tool to allow you pass single or multiple geometries in a folder for the tool to find the mosaic quads and then process and download it. For now the geometry is passed as a geojson file, but I have included a tool for you to convert any shapefile into geojson files so you can use this tool. In the future I will add support for kml and json files as well.

You can cite the tool using the following or from this link

Installation

Install Fiona and GDAL for windows using the whl files here if there are any issues during installation.

This assumes that you have native python & pip installed in your system, you can test this by going to the terminal (or windows command prompt) and trying

python and then pip list

If you get no errors and you have python 2.7.14 or higher you should be good to go. Please note that I have tested this only on python 2.7.15 but it should run on python 3.

To install pbasemap: Planet Mosaic Quads Download CLI you can install using two methods

pip install pbasemap

or you can also try

git clone https://github.com/samapriya/Planet-Mosaic-Quads-Download-CLI.git
cd pbasemap
python setup.py install

For linux use sudo and for windows right click the command prompt and run as admin.

Installation is an optional step; the application can be also run directly by executing pbasemap.py script. The advantage of having it installed is being able to execute ppipe as any command line tool. I recommend installation within virtual environment. If you don't want to install, browse into the pbasemap folder and try python pbasemap.py to get to the same result.

Getting started

As usual, to print help:

usage: pbasemap.py [-h] {rbox,mosaic_list,download,mpdownload,shp2geojson} ...

Planet Mosaic Quads Download CLI

positional arguments:
  {rbox,mosaic_list,download,mpdownload,shp2geojson}
    rbox                Prints bounding box for geometry
    mosaic_list         Tool to get Mosaic & Bounding Box list
    download            Download quad GeoTiffs choose from name or idlist
    mpdownload          Download quad GeoTiffs using multipart downloader
    shp2geojson         Convert all shapefiles in folder to GeoJSON

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  ```

To obtain help for a specific functionality, simply call it with _help_ switch, e.g.: `pbasemap shp2geojson -h`. If you didn't install pbasemap, then you can run it just by going to *pbasemap* directory and running `python pbasemap.py [arguments go here]`

## pbasemap Simple CLI for Basemaps API
The tool allows you to list and download basemap quads that instersect with area of interest, and have controls such as date range and check for final coverage before download. The CLI also allows you to export the mosaics list as needed and can handle GeoJSON and KML files, and includes a tool to convert shapefiles to GeoJSON files for use with this tool.

### bounding box
This tool simply prints the bounding box for any geometry feature that is passed. This is useful if you are using the planet CLI to downlaod quads which requires a bounding box.It prints out the bounding box for use.

usage: pbasemap.py rbox [-h] [--geometry GEOMETRY]

optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit --geometry GEOMETRY Choose a geometry file supports GeoJSON, KML


### mosaic list
This tool exports the mosaics name, id that intersect with your bounding box for your geometry. This can then be used to download the quads.

usage: pbasemap.py mosaic_list [-h] [--geometry GEOMETRY] [--start START] [--end END] [--output OUTPUT]

optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit --geometry GEOMETRY Choose a geometry file supports GeoJSON, KML --start START Choose Start date in format YYYY-MM-DD --end END Choose End date in format YYYY-MM-DD --output OUTPUT Full path where you want your mosaic list exported


### download mosaic
As the name suggests this downloads your mosaic to the local folder you specify, you can specify how much coverage you want over your geometry and over the quad. So you may decide to only download those mosaic quads that have coverage more than 90% by simply specifying ```--coverage 90``` in the arguments. Once you create the list of mosaics that intersect with your geometry, you should be able to use the idlist option to export them all. Since L15 qauds can have the same name, the name of the mosaic is prepended to the filename.

usage: pbasemap.py download [-h] [--geometry GEOMETRY] [--local LOCAL] [--coverage COVERAGE] [--name NAME] [--idlist IDLIST]

optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit --geometry GEOMETRY Choose a geometry file supports GeoJSON, KML --local LOCAL Local folder to download images

Optional named arguments: --coverage COVERAGE Choose minimum percentage coverage --name NAME Mosaic name from earlier search or csvfile --idlist IDLIST Mosaic list csvfile


### multipart download mosaic
This uses a multipart downloader to download your mosaic to the local folder you specify, you can specify how much coverage you want over your geometry and over the quad. So you may decide to only download those mosaic quads that have coverage more than 90% by simply specifying ```--coverage 90``` in the arguments.Once you create the list of mosaics that intersect with your geometry, you should be able to use the idlist option to export them all. Since L15 qauds can have the same name, the name of the mosaic is prepended to the filename.

usage: pbasemap.py mpdownload [-h] [--geometry GEOMETRY] [--local LOCAL] [--coverage COVERAGE] [--name NAME] [--idlist IDLIST]

optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit --geometry GEOMETRY Choose a geometry file supports GeoJSON, KML --local LOCAL Local folder to download images

Optional named arguments: --coverage COVERAGE Choose minimum percentage coverage --name NAME Mosaic name from earlier search or csvfile --idlist IDLIST Mosaic list csvfile


### shape to geojson
This tool allows you to convert from  a folder with multiple shapefiles to a folder with geojson that can then be used with the tool. It makes use of geopandas and reprojects your shapefile to make it compatible while passing onto the API for search and download.

usage: pbasemap shp2geojson [-h] [--source SOURCE] [--destination DESTINATION]

optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit --source SOURCE Choose Source Folder --destination DESTINATION Choose Destination Folder ```
