Using the Ordered Imagery page

The Ordered Imagery Overview page provides a space to track contract usage and ordered imagery details. Once you select a portfolio, you'll be taken to the Property Overview page. From this page, select “Ordered Imagery” from the Overview dropdown menu in the top navigation bar.

Current Contract

The Current Contract section contains details about the active Lens contract for the selected Portfolio. Note that all monetary values are in US dollars. At a glance, you can see the:

  • Contract name and dates
  • Amount of imagery ordered to date on the contract
  • Price per acre for commercial imagery
  • Not-to-exceed amounts, if applicable

If the current contract includes multiple Portfolios, this section’s statistics will reflect orders and any contract limits across all Portfolios in the Lens account.

To view all contracts in your organization, click the "Go to all contracts" link in the upper-right corner.

Order History

The Order History section only contains ordered imagery details for the currently selected Portfolio.


The filters toolbar allows you to filter the ordered imagery records by the following:

  • Property name
  • Image date, acreage, and source
  • Ordered date and orderer
  • Contract, which defaults to the current contract for the selected Portfolio

The filter values apply to the charts and table in this section, allowing you to explore your data flexibly.


The pie and histogram charts help you understand the following statistics about the ordered imagery records that match your section filters:

  • Number of properties with one or more high-resolution image ordered
  • Number of ordered images by capture date 
  • Number of ordered images by source


The sortable table includes all ordered imagery records to date in the selected Portfolio that match your section filters. For each ordered image, you can see the:

  • Image: Hover over the media icon to preview the ordered image.
  • Property: The property associated with the image. Click on the name to navigate to the property map with the image overlay.
  • Image Date: The image capture date.
  • Acreage: The image area in acres.
  • Cost: The image cost in U.S. dollars.
  • Source: The image source operator and resolution.
  • Order Date: The image order date.
  • Ordered By: Lens user who ordered the image.
  • Contract: The contract on which the image was ordered.

This table only includes ordered imagery records for the selected Portfolio. To explore ordered imagery records for another Portfolio, navigate back to the Portfolios screen, choose a different Portfolio of interest, and navigate to the Ordered Imagery Overview page.
