Planet Science Programs
Through Planet’s Science Programs, researchers and educators around the world can access our imagery for a wide range of non-commercial applications.
Through our Education and Research (E&R) Program, Planet provides university access to PlanetScope and RapidEye imagery for non-commercial research use by application. The E&R Program hosts more than 10,000 users across 100+ countries and more than 1,000 universities.
Through CSDA, all researchers funded by a U.S. federal civilian agency and/or the National Science Foundation have access to Planet’s vast archive of PlanetScope and RapidEye imagery for scientific, non-operational use cases.
Any researcher from an ESA member state or China, including non-profit researchers and those at government institutions, may apply for access to PlanetScope, RapidEye, and SkySat imagery through the ESA EarthNet portal.
Any German researcher, including non-profit researchers and those at government institutions, may apply for access to PlanetScope, RapidEye, and SkySat imagery through the RESA program.
Through Norway’s International Climate and Forests Initiative (NICFI), anyone can now access Planet’s high-resolution, analysis-ready mosaics of the world’s tropics for the purposes of reducing and reversing tropical forest loss, combating climate change, conserving biodiversity, and facilitating sustainable development.
