Introduction to Planet Labs, Platforms and Near-Daily Imagery
Summary: The space industry is undergoing a rapid transformation, one that allows us to see our world like never before. Planet Labs is a revolutionary satellite image provider, capturing the Earth’s landmass at a near-daily pace. Not only are these images being collected daily but they consist of a 3.5-meter spatial resolution and contain eight channels of multispectral information. This unique dataset offers a variety of opportunities to explore Earth like never before. Come join us to learn more about Planet Labs, satellite imagery, Planet platforms and a demonstration of the Planet Explorer platform! What would you study with daily imagery?
