Planet is pleased to announce that we have once again partnered with Geoplex, a mapping and GIS systems company based in Australia, to deliver timely, high resolution satellite image data. We’re especially excited about this effort because a portion of the data to be used by the Queensland government, within its Department of Natural Resources and Mines (DNRM), will be made available to the public under creative commons.

While satellite imagery over the State of Queensland was previously captured only once every couple of years, this partnership between Planet and Geoplex will provide DNRM with seasonally updated mosaics multiple times in a single year. The first-ever stream of quarterly-updated data will help decision-makers at the state and agency level make timely, better-informed decisions.
Geoplex was one of Planet’s first international partners, and we could not be more grateful for their continued loyalty and collaboration in our mission to make data about our planet visible, accessible and actionable.
