Dove Imagery used to Assess Economic Damage after a Wildfire in Haifa, Israel

Paper

In November, 2016, Haifa, Israel experienced a fire on the Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI), causing damage to homes and other infrastructure in the urban forest landscape. The damage was visible in several Earth Observation datasets, including MODIS, Sentinel-2, and the Planet Dove constellation. Yaron Michael, in the Department of Geography and Environment at […]

SkySat-3 Demonstrates Asteroid Imaging

Paper

The proliferation of small satellites may make it easier to track near-Earth objects—asteroids and other potentially hazardous objects that could impact our Planet. In collaboration with Planet, Chengxing Zhai and team utilized SkySat-3 to demonstrate imaging of the main belt asteroid, 889 Erynia, and near-Earth oject 1998YP11. From January through April of 2017, SkySat-3 […]

Stanford Students Deploy Deep Learning with Planet Imagery

Features

As Planet’s Education and Research Community continues to grow, students are increasingly working with Planet imagery in college courses. At Stanford University, several students recently utilized Planet imagery in Computer Science 230: Deep Learning. Ian Avery Bick, Dennis Wang and Ben Mullet examined deforestation near Kibale National Park in Southern Uganda, an […]

Shoreline Changes in RapidEye Time Series of Pecém Port, Ceará, Brazil

Paper

Shoreline geomorphology is the result of natural forces including tidal action and storm activity, as well as anthropogenic changes to coastal infrastructure that can alter shoreline evolution and stability. High temporal- and spatial-resolution imagery can increase our understanding of the mechanisms that lead to these changes, and determine the influence of human […]

Structure-from-motion with SkySat Video

Blog

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 captured video over a large open pit mine in Uşak, Turkey. Parallax—the […]
