Planet and Esri expand satellite partnership
By Deepthi Shankar, Planet
Planet is expanding its partnership with GIS software developer, Esri, allowing users to buy Planet imagery directly within the GIS software. The company’s imagery, combined with ArcGIS software, speeds up GIS workflows and enriches GIS databases with the most up-to-date imagery. Along with the new reseller agreement, the companies will collaborate on developing advanced geospatial solutions for civil government and energy.
Many industries benefit from more frequent imagery in their GIS. Energy companies, for example, can use Planet’s Analytic Feeds in the Esri platform to provide prompt location-based insights for remote monitoring of critical assets or for informing acquisition strategies. Civil governments use Esri’s ArcGIS software in many ways as well, from designing smarter land use plans to creating maps for constituent engagement. Through this partnership, ArcGIS users can augment land-use planning and monitor workflows with current imagery to map and track change more frequently than ever before.
