Planet is the leading provider of global, near-daily satellite imagery data and insights. Planet is driven by a mission to image all of Earth’s landmass every day, and make global change visible, accessible and actionable. Founded in 2010 by three NASA scientists, Planet designs, builds, and operates the largest fleet of satellites, as well as online software, tools and analytics needed to deliver data to users. Planet’s high frequency satellite imagery allows for informed, timely decisions with the most current and complete in-season coverage for monitoring fields anywhere on earth.
Agriculture companies use Planet satellite imagery to develop technology solutions that increase overall farm productivity, profitability, and sustainability for their end users–whether they are agronomists, farmers, retailers, input providers, or commodities traders. Continuous global coverage and a 10-year multispectral imagery archive means there is current and historical data available anywhere that companies need to grow and expand.
Planet is revolutionizing the way geospatial imagery is processed, analyzed, distributed, and accessed by making satellite data available nearly instantly via web-based APIs and an online catalog. The platform is capable of delivering terabytes of fresh data every day and uses machine learning analytics to yield powerful insights that drive business decisions. The entire dataset is cloud-based so it can be integrated directly into workflows and combined with complementary data like weather, soil type, and farm management practices.
