Planet supports the International Charter for Space and Major Disasters. We make imagery available directly to the public, volunteers, humanitarian organizations, and other coordinating bodies.
In partnership with the Digital Humanitarian Network, Planet has launched a new volunteer program to help ensure Planet's data gets to the right people at the right time to accelerate and improve humanitarian response. After receiving specialized training on the Planet platform and data, members of Planet Rapid Response respond quickly to requests for geospatial analysis from field-based humanitarian organizations in times of disaster response.
