This is aligned with Planet’s mission to enable easier access to geospatial data and the availability of Planetary Variables product line via Planet’s data APIs. Easy-to-use EO data has the potential to unlock transformational insights for businesses and society by putting the power of geospatial data into the hands of non-expert users, enabling data-informed decision making, better management of operations, greater understanding of environmental and social change, and increased global transparency.
