Do the PI resource scanning skills have a direct effect on your p0 output?

For instance, if I have one character that has max PI skills, can I scout out the best locations for my alt who has no PI scanning skills and still obtain similar* output?

Note *: obviously it wouldn't be exactly the same, but pretty close to the actual hot spots.

They have no direct effect on extraction. You can use your main to scan.

They don't affect the planet in any way, only the heat map you see showing the resource concentrations. The jury is still out on how useful the skills are at all. Mine are at level 4 and 3, and that seems to give me enough info to plant the extractors. Then you just move the pins around til you can find a good haul for the day/week/whatever. It's somewhat annoying have to move the pins around pretty much at random, but it does seem better than the old system.

Awesome, thank you.

Saves me the inconvenience of training the scanning skills on my alts.

just high enough to get the right area, as I tend to spin the planet(it's not ship spinning, but whatever)
