The "Cost" table shows the following:

Column Heading Description
Category The imagery age category the costs in the row are associated with, and the total of all three categories.
Amount The dollar amount consumed during the specified date range for the category.
Limit The total and per-category limits set for the account.
Available The total and per-category remaining balance for the account.

Not all contracts have fee limits for each image age category. If the "limit" and "available" columns show a value of "unlimited", no fee limit was set for the category. However, the category is still constrained by the total subscription fee limit.

The bar chart provides a graphical representation of the costs by image age category.


The "Area" section shows the number of square kilometers (sq km) ordered during the specified date range. Total sq km and sq km per image age category are displayed.

The donut chart displays the breakdown of area usage by image age category.

The User Breakdown section shows total and per-category costs for each user in the account. Active and inactive users associated with the account appear in the list to ensure that all costs incurred for the account are shown.

For additional information about the user, click the vertical dots control under the "Actions" column at the end of the user's row, and choose a category.

The usage breakdown shows 5 users in the list. The listed users can be sorted by clicking the column heading you want to sort by. Page through additional users by clicking the forward or backward button below the list.
