Drumroll, please! Introducing Planet Community


One of my favorite parts of working at Planet is the fact that I’m perpetually surrounded by brilliant people doing amazing things with satellite imagery. Nearly every day, I’m introduced to a new idea or methodology from our growing user base that I was previously unfamiliar with. It’s one of the biggest highlights of my work here, and today I’m excited to announce that we’re making it easier for our ever-growing community of users to post their findings and questions, learn from one another, and share their work.

Welcome to Planet Community, a virtual gathering space open to all users of Planet data and products. For the past two months, members of Planet’s Education & Research program have been beta testing Planet Community, and we’re delighted to officially open the doors.

So, come join the conversation! Log in now and sign in with your Planet Explorer credentials (new to Planet? Sign up for a free account here) to show off your work, troubleshoot problems, learn from fellow Community members, and tell the world what you’re doing with Planet imagery. Just this week, Planet Community member Thiago Silva shared before & after imagery showing the dam collapse in Brumadinho, Brazil. While posting comments or questions requires a Planet account, the Community can be viewed by anyone! Before posting, make sure you’ve read and understand the Code of Conduct.

I’m looking forward to meeting more of you, and can’t wait to hear about the work you’re doing with Planet’s data. Drop by Planet Community and introduce yourself today!
