I am ecstatic to announce today that Planet has struck an unprecedented deal with the geo- analytics company, Orbital Insight. Together, we’re making a strong expansion into the financial sector.
This partnership represents some of the most exciting trends happening in the geo world. And the reason is simple: Five years ago, a partnership like this wouldn’t have been possible because the capabilities didn’t exist. Datasets like Planet’s (broad coverage, high frequency monitoring from nano satellite constellations) were the domain of academic papers, and machine learning driven geo-analytics just weren’t happening in commercial markets. We have come an awfully long way.
