Colombia faces a complex array of challenges concerning land redistribution and agrarian reform. Historically, governments have encountered difficulties advancing due to uncertainties surrounding land ownership, field boundaries, and property values. Presently, agencies can utilize near-daily satellite imagery to consistently monitor land use across extensive areas, enhancing visibility and laying the groundwork for policy changes.
HIGH-FREQUENCY, COUNTRYWIDE DATA
Planet can provide countrywide, intradaily coverage, which can reduce the need for aircraft or individual resources.
Planet’s cloud-first APIs allow you to build applications quickly that scale across Colombia's various departments.

SUPPORTING COUNTRYWIDE EFFORTS
Planet maintains a strong relationship with various government entities in the country, covering areas such as the environment, energy, and land use, among others. Planet's flexibility in image delivery provides a regular supply to various government departments, facilitating officials in planning and agile response to challenges, thereby reducing resource management costs and enhancing the impact on citizens. Currently, Planet supplies daily satellite images for Colombia's largest national project for Earth and territory observation, actively participating in promoting agricultural solutions for both the public and private sectors.
Land Use Monitoring
Planet helps governments identify and monitor changes to land cover, vegetation, infraestructure, and other activities over vast areas. This support extends to the country's largest monitoring project, the "Earth and Territory Observatory," led by the Agustín Codazzi Geographic Institute (IGAC), which is responsible for producing Colombia's official maps and basic cartography, and also managing the national cadastral infrastructure and the national soil survey.

Defense & Intelligence
Planet pairs persistent global satellite monitoring and low latency tasking, with machine learning-based analytics to deliver early intelligence across shifting geopolitical landscapes. In the context of Colombia, this technology has been applied to monitor border areas, especially with Venezuela, as well as track and estimate areas with illicit crops. This facilitates a precise assessment of the problem and an efficient allocation of resources for its eradication.
