Overview

An introduction to Alerts & Notifications

Tasks and Results are a powerful set of features allowing you to specify exactly what type of imagery you're interested in and let us do all the work of finding it and processing it for you. You can set up a Task to run on imagery in the past or in the future, or both! A Task can process imagery or merely notify you of its presence and you can chose how to receive the Results. [block:api-header] { "type": "basic", "title": "Tasks" } [/block] Tasks are the mechanism through which you tell the system what base imagery you are interested in, what you want to do with that imagery and how you want to receive the Results. This is your personal imagery pipeline, and you just need to give the platform a few simple instructions to put it to work for you.
