Tropical and Temperate Forest Phenology Revealed by Planet Imagery

A team of researchers led by Professor Jin Wu, at the University of Hong Kong, has been studying tropical and temperate forest phenology—the rhythms and periods of life. Aided by the high revisit rate of Dove satellites, Jing Wang and…...

PlanetScope Imagery Reveals that COVID Lockdown Reduced Sediments in Waters of Venice

Early in the COVID-19 pandemic, humanity noted several effects of lockdowns on the Earth system from orbit, including vacant highways, and reductions in air pollution. People affected in Venice reported that the local waters were clearer than they had been…

The State of Remote Sensing Capabilities of Cascading Hazards Over High Mountain Asia

The towering mountain ranges of the Tibetan Plateau, such as the Himalayas and the Hindu Kush, are a prime area for a host of natural disasters. Earthquakes, landslides, and glacial floods are common occurrences in the region thanks to the confluence of geological activity there, along with the effects of climate change. […]

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 Hellas, with colleagues from the German Aerospace Centre, used Planet’s Dove images […]

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 regions of the Earth, but also more frequent during particular seasons due […]

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 […]
