Improve disaster preparedness, response and recovery

"Thirty-two countries are experiencing increasing floods, with 25 more poised to be added to that list by 2030." - CNN

Satellite imagery provides a cost-effective way to keep tabs on the potential for disaster.

Monitoring sewage from space

In 2022, London experienced a flash flood that overloaded sewers. To mitigate future flood and health risks, a research project was conducted combining AI and Planet satellite technology.

Planet imagery was used to help detect organic matter from sewage overspills and downstream impact, playing a major role in building scenarios for current future predictive analysis.

Protect vulnerable water resources

Droughts are becoming more frequent, distressing the health of communities and protected habitats. Tracking changes in water levels can help proactively plan for allocation and conservation.

Planet’s high-frequency imagery reveals historically low water levels in Lake Mead, a source of drinking water and agricultural irrigation for multiple states across the western US. The data derived from these images empowers local agencies to create strategic allocation and conservation plans.
