"Planet imagery may be used to detect and map deforestation events greater than one hectare. Results show that change caused by deforestation can be automatically extracted with high accuracy."
Pete Watt, Indufor
"There is no other comparable commercial system offering the combination of sensing large areas in high spatial and temporal resolution."
Petr Lukeš, Czech Republic Forest Management Institute
"Planet’s rapid revisit times and high resolution are the most important factors, giving PlanetScope data advantages over alternatives both in forest monitoring and in forest area estimation."
Dr. Hans Ole Orka, Norwegian University of Life Sciences
"Very early on, we recognised Planet's daily imagery product as a game-changer for forest operations management. We wanted to ensure New Zealand forestry companies were at the forefront of the spatial and temporal resolution this technology offers"
David Herries, Director, General Manager, Interpine.
