Each daily update of the data re-calculates values for two days backwards (DAY-1 and DAY-2). Monthly update (on 3rd day of each calendar month) re-calculates the whole previous month as soon as it's completed. The purpose of these updates is described in this article. We gradually expand spatial coverage of satellite data accessible via API. To access operational and historical data in the grey areas on the map, please use Solargis climData online shop.
