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…

Dove and RapidEye Images Reveal the Climate Dynamics of Tens of Thousands of High-latitude Lakes

In the Arctic and Boreal regions, millions of freshwater lakes influence carbon dioxide and methane emissions to the atmosphere. Lakes that are more dynamic, with a variable shoreline, may have a greater flux of these greenhouse gases. Leveraging the Planet Dove and RapidEye constellations, which collectively image daily and sometimes multiple times […]

Convolutional Neural Networks used to Detect and Classify Ships in Dove Imagery

With daily imagery over ports and coastlines, one of the most useful potential applications of Planet’s Dove imagery is the detection and classification of maritime vessels. Ship tracking has a vital role in security, but the enormous number of ships at sea at any given time limits the effectiveness of classical, human-powered […]

Sowing Date Detection with the Planet Dove Constellation

The date of sowing (or planting) of an agricultural field has an enormous influence over crop health and yield. With climate change, in many cases alteration of sowing dates may be critical for adapting to changing temperature and precipitation. Sowing too early can increase the risk of frost damage, while sowing too […]

Convolutional Neural Networks used to Detect Landslides in RapidEye Imagery

Landslides pose a major threat to people and property throughout the world, and particularly in landslide-prone regions. Improving our ability to monitor those landslides can improve mitigation, and may ultimately reveal approaches that could predict certain types of landslides in the future. Omid Ghorbanzadeh, from the University of Salzburg, and his team […]

High Spatiotemporal Retrievals of Crop-Water Use for Precision Agriculture

Global agriculture implicates roughly ¾ of all freshwater use on Earth. With demand on the global food supply increasing with population growth, and agricultural systems falling under greater stress due to climate change, water security is under increased risk. Remote sensing of evapotranspiration—the amount of water evaporated off, or transpired by vegetation—offers […]
