Introduction to Planet:

Planet is the leading provider of global, daily satellite imagery and geospatial solutions. 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 earth observation fleet of satellites, and provides the online software, tools and analytics needed to deliver data to users. Decision makers in business, government, and within organizations can use Planet's data and machine learning-powered analytics to develop new technologies, drive revenue, power research, and make informed, timely decisions to solve our world's toughest challenges. From measuring climate risks and urban growth, to monitoring biodiversity hotspots and global supply chains, Planet’s data and products are a key component of data-driven, sustainable solutions. Industry, government, and NGOs partner with Planet to build solutions that promote sustainable growth, measure and verify commitments, and demonstrate positive outcomes for investors and the public. Planet data is helpful in measuring dozens of indicators under 13 of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and we are working closely with the United Nations to help achieve the 2030 agenda. With the help of our data, organizations can develop approaches that support and align with the SDGs, while achieving growth. To learn more visit and follow us on Twitter at @planetlabs.
