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


The URL uses gRPC Transcoding syntax.

Query parameters


object (LatLng)

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



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.

enum (DataLayerView)

Optional. The desired subset of the data to return.


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.



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.



Optional. Whether to require exact quality of the imagery. If set to false, the requiredQuality field is interpreted as the minimum required quality, such that HIGH quality imagery may be returned when requiredQuality is set to MEDIUM. If set to true, requiredQuality is interpreted as the exact required quality and only MEDIUM quality imagery is returned if requiredQuality is set to MEDIUM.

Request body

The request body must be empty.

Response body

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