If I understand correctly, you would want to avoid mixing data coming from two or more scenes?
The easiest way to do that is to check the exact sensing time of the scene (with hours, minutes and seconds) and then use this in the FROM/TO parameter in OGC request (TIME) or process API.
The color disbalance you see is a consequence of several types of satellites currently operating (dove, super dove, super dove 2). This situation will be improving through time.
@gmilcinski We are fine having data from multiple scenes even though they are few minutes or hours apart but should be of same day.
So, What my question was, rather than managing the logic at our end to take appropriate portion of our AOI from either single scene or if AOI is not completely covered by single scene then multiple scenes. Do you have any provision where we just give our AOI (i.e. upload KML) and in return we get the processed Planet Scope image of our AOI. So, we don’t have to bother whether it was extracted from multiple scenes or single scene.
As you mentioned color disbalance issue is due to several types of satellites. Can we know in the meta data what kind of satellite has covered a particular scene?
