Abstract: The main objective of the report is to assess whether images produced by PlanetScope sensor are suitable for usage in CAP CwRS programme, specifically in the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). The benchmarking presented herein aims at evaluating the usability of PlanetScope images for the CAP checks through an estimation of its geometric (positional) accuracy. The tests have been performed on PlanetScope Ortho Tile product data. For that purpose, the External Quality Control of Planetscope orthoimagery conforms to the standard method developed by JRC and follows a procedure already adopted in the validation of previous high and very-high resolution products.
