Below is an email from Planet, formally Planet Lab, offering access to a global database of images providing the broadband user a new set of tools for exploring the planet and creating new ideas for analysis and possible business applications.
Planet has about 500 images for every given location on Earth’s landmass – a massive dataset, documenting immense change. To bring this change to life, we recently released two new Planet Explorer tools: Timelapse and Compare.
With the introduction of these features, anyone can easily tell stories of change by creating time series’ or side-by-side comparisons of Planet imagery, easily shareable online.
To get your feet wet, new Planet Explorer users will get access to global, full-resolution PlanetScope and RapidEye imagery for a two-week trial to browse, compare, and share stories of change from anywhere on Earth.
