Global Imagery Donation From Planet Labs

Planet Labs, an US based imaging company that operates a constellation of miniature satellites, recently announced a new collaborative project with the United Nations and a number of private institutions and NGOs. The initiative, known as Open Region, will see the publication of $60 million worth of global imagery under a Creative Commons License Attribution-ShareAlike (CC-BY-SA) license.

The data will be available online through the Planet Labs imaging platform and accessed using web-based tools and/or an API for developers. The hope is easy and open access to the new data sets will provide a platform to help meet the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, which include tackling climate change, promoting sustainable use of resources and eliminating poverty.
