Presented by Austin Stone, Customer Success Manager for Education & Research at Planet Labs

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 global images at near-daily intervals. That’s right, global. Not only are these images being collected daily but they consist of a 3.7-meter spatial resolution and contain four channels of multispectral information (blue, green, red and near infrared). This unique dataset offers many opportunities to explore Earth like never before. Come join this talk to learn more about Planet Labs and see a demonstration of the Planet Explorer platform! What would you study with daily imagery?
