USA: Arizona State University (ASU) has announced that it has partnered with Planet, a San Francisco-based Earth-imaging company, as its institutional data partner for higher education.

In an effort to expand the research use of this unprecedented stream of satellite imagery, the students of AS and researchers will have access to the growing catalog of imagery from the company’s Dove and RapidEye 3-5m satellites.

According to Tanya Harrison, Director; Research, ASU NewSpace, “Combining ASU’s leadership in innovation with the unprecedented temporal resolution of Planet data provides the opportunity to unlock massive research potential.”

The new data partnership between ASU and Planet will open the floodgates for literally everyday use of satellite imaging technology to address many of the most pressing issues on Earth including biodiversity loss and climate change.
