Dove Imagery Used for Bathymetric Mapping

Satellite-derived bathymetry has numerous applications, including enhanced mapping and classification of bathymetric features such as coral reefs and seagrass meadows, as well as use in maritime navigation and coastline infrastructure. Dimitris Poursanidis from the Foundation for Research and Technology in…...

Mapping Landslide Susceptibility in Dove Imagery after the 2018 Tomakomai Earthquake

Globally, landslides kill ~5,000 people per year. If landslides—including rock falls, mudslides and other surface failures—can be better predicted, these deaths could be avoided. Landslides are highly heterogeneous, both spatially and temporally. They are more common in the steep, mountainous…

Structure-from-motion with SkySat Video

Unique among commercial sensors, the SkySats are capable of full-motion, panchromatic video from space. Ramon Arrowsmith, professor of Geology at Arizona State University decomposed one SkySat video to produce 3D models. As Ramon notes in his Active Tectonics Blog, SkySat…

Semi-arid Rangeland Phenology Revealed with the Planet Dove Constellation

Temporal resolution is one of four axes by which one may judge the value of a remote sensing data source. Unlike spatial, spectral and radiometric resolution, temporal resolution can be used to decompose the day-to-day dynamics of ecosystems, revealing their phenology—the natural processes by which ecosystems (particularly vegetation) change over time. A […]

Multi-sensor Fusion to Assess Building Damage After Sulawesi Earthquake and Tsunami

When disaster strikes, accurate information about the scale and scope of impact becomes critical. The first 24 hours are often the most important, and any accurate data may prove life saving. Leveraging data from Planet’s Disaster Program, Bruno Adriano and his team used a variety of data sources and machine learning to […]

River Morphology Dynamics Revealed with Dove Imagery

The movement of river sediment influences many aspects of land management, including water quality and the life cycle of dams and other impoundments. Hydrologists will benefit from improved methodologies to track river sediment flow and geomorphological evolution of the river channel. Robert Strick, from the University of Brighton, and colleagues used a […]

Sub-daily Dove Imagery Used to Measure River Velocity

If it were possible, a stationary observer in sun synchronous orbit would see one Planet Dove satellite rocket past every ~90 seconds. At polar latitudes, the relative speed of Earth’s rotation is much lower, like the inside tracks of a vinyl record. As a result, Planet often collects multiple images of the […]

RapidEye Imagery Used to Monitor Suspended Sediments in Tropical Rivers

The flow of suspended sediment—fine particles carried by the water column—varies widely in tropical rivers, and can influence water availability, silting of reservoirs and pollution. Monitoring sediment loads over large rivers can be difficult with ground stations, making remote sensing a preferred solution. However, high spatial and temporal resolution are required to […]
