Method: dataLayers.get

Gets solar information for a region surrounding a location. Returns an error with code NOT_FOUND if the location is outside the coverage area.

HTTP request

GET https://solar.googleapis.com/v1/dataLayers:get

The URL uses gRPC Transcoding syntax.

Query parameters

Parameters
location

object (LatLng)

Required. The longitude and latitude for the center of the region to get data for.

radiusMeters

number

Required. The radius, in meters, defining the region surrounding that centre point for which data should be returned. The limitations on this value are:

  • Any value up to 100m can always be specified.
  • Values over 100m can be specified, as long as radiusMeters <= pixelSizeMeters * 1000.
  • However, for values over 175m, the DataLayerView in the request must not include monthly flux or hourly shade.
view

enum (DataLayerView)

Optional. The desired subset of the data to return.

requiredQuality

enum (ImageryQuality)

Optional. The minimum quality level allowed in the results. No result with lower quality than this will be returned. Not specifying this is equivalent to restricting to HIGH quality only.

pixelSizeMeters

number

Optional. The minimum scale, in meters per pixel, of the data to return. Values of 0.1 (the default, if this field is not set explicitly), 0.25, 0.5, and 1.0 are supported. Imagery components whose normal resolution is less than pixelSizeMeters will be returned at the resolution specified by pixelSizeMeters; imagery components whose normal resolution is equal to or greater than pixelSizeMeters will be returned at that normal resolution.

Request body

The request body must be empty.

Response body

If successful, the response body contains an instance of DataLayers.

Authorization scopes

Requires the following OAuth scope:

  • https://www.googleapis.com/auth/cloud-platform

DataLayerView

What subset of the solar information to return.

Enums
DATA_LAYER_VIEW_UNSPECIFIED Equivalent to FULL.
DSM_LAYER Get the DSM only.
IMAGERY_LAYERS Get the DSM, RGB, and mask.
IMAGERY_AND_ANNUAL_FLUX_LAYERS Get the DSM, RGB, mask, and annual flux.
IMAGERY_AND_ALL_FLUX_LAYERS Get the DSM, RGB, mask, annual flux, and monthly flux.
FULL_LAYERS Get all data.
