As a certified Third Party Mission in the European Space Agency’s Earthnet Programme, Planet’s high-frequency, high-resolution imagery is available to the Earth Observation community for non-commercial use. Scientists, researchers, and companies from around the world can leverage near-daily PlanetScope, high-resolution SkySat, and RapidEye archive data for land use monitoring, climate research, and capturing global change.

Initiated in 1976, the ESA Earthnet Programme is a “network for Earth,” with the purpose of building an Earth Observation science community to acquire and share knowledge of our planet. Within this programme, Planet joins more than 50 other missions to add near-daily PlanetScope imagery, 50 cm orthorectified SkySat imagery, and RapidEye archive data to this global network.
