How do I find the image acquisition date?

Home > Faq > How do I find the image acquisition date?

There are several options, depending on what you would like to do:

  1. You can use a feature info request and point to some location. The response will contain a date field within it.
  2. You can use the WFS service with the same parameters as used in your WMS request (e.g. date, cloud coverage). You will get a list of features representing scenes fitting the criteria.
  3. You can configure the layer to show acquisition dates.
    • Go to the layer of choice.
    • Click the "Advanced" button in the Layer tab to enter advanced parameters dialogue.
    • (optional) You can turn on Help by clicking on "?" top right.
    • Add "additionalData" node with type "Date"
  • Click Save in Advanced parameters dialogue and Layers tab.
