Learn how to Sell Survey Data and earn credits in Starfield.

Selling the Survey Data that you have collected by scanning Resources, Flora, and Fauna can get you Credits in Starfield.

In this guide, you will understand how to sell your Data and earn Credits easily.

How to Sell Survey Data in Starfield

  • After you have collected all the Data you can sell the Survey to Vladimir Sall who is stationed in the star station, The Eye.
  • You can find all the collected Survey data in your Inventory and give it to him.
  • In return for this exchange, Vladimir will give you Credits for the Survey data you have provided him with.

In addition to this, it is very important to remember that you can only sell the Survey that is 100% complete, which means all the Resources, Flora, and Fauna present on that planet need to be scanned.

How to Collect Survey Data From Planets

  • Once you land on the Planet you have selected, click on the ‘F’ button to get your scanner out.
  • When you have your scanner pointed in front of you, you will have to aim at the blue items.
  • Once they turn green, it means they have been successfully scanned.
  • Sometimes, even after you have scanned everything in sight, your total will still show you are missing some targets. This is prone to happen on a planet that is more abundant with life as compared to Flora and Fauna. In this case, you will have to leave and fly to a different Biome to get the remaining Resources. You can survey the Biome in advance before you land through the map screen.
  • Another way to complete your survey is to bring up your scanner and point it further away from you to check if any pop-ups marked under ‘Natural’ or ‘Life Signs’ are visible. If they are, by pursuing that path, you can scan those items that are blue in color.
