Introduction to Satellite Imagery with Planet: Daily imaging for Earth science

Friday, January 17, 2020 at 10:00am to 12:00pm

Building 2, 2-105
182 MEMORIAL DR, Cambridge, MA 02139

Are you new to working with satellite imagery and want to learn more about how it can be accessed and used in research? Do you want to share how you have been using Planet imagery and learn from peers?

This discussion will introduce you to the Planet imagery subscription at MIT. Planet is an integrated aerospace and data analytics company that operates the largest fleet of earth observation satellites in history. Planet has more than 7,000 users studying a wide variety of disciplines, including climate change in the cryosphere, terrestrial ecosystems and vegetation dynamics, wildlife biology, threats to coral reefs and other marine habitats, agricultural productivity, and disaster response and humanitarian assistance.

We will share results from Planet’s research partner network, synthesize the potential scientific value of Planet’s persistent monitoring capability, and discuss methods by which the data can be accessed by the MIT user community.

Attendees may explore existing research prior to the workshop at


We will host an additional hands-on workshop in the afternoon to learn more about using the Planet interface.
