What exactly is Image Alert?
Image Alert is “the asynchronous version of a manual search“. In a nutshell, you tell us what you are looking for and we will send you an email every time new fresh, imagery has been added to our catalogue. This way you don’t have to go back to the application and run your favourite search, you just get notified when there are new matching results.
How do you create Image Alerts?
In EarthImages, scroll down your search results until you get to the Image Alert section. Click on the link, a popup will appear. Provide your email address so we can send you an email when we have found new imagery for you. Check the screenshot below in which I set up an image alert for the Fort McMurray forest fires.
