Natural disaster responders revisit imagery of the Santa Cruz Mountains to monitor revegetation after September 2016's Loma Fire.

With a Planet Explorer account you’ll have access to our entire archive of imagery within the disaster affected area, for a minimum of 30 days. We will also provide API keys to access imagery programatically.

Please email disaster-access@planet.com for assistance in accessing imagery over the affected area.

Planet Rapid Response

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.
