Planet and Orbital Insight, a geospatial analytics provider, entered a multi-year contract for Orbital Insight to source daily, global satellite imagery from Planet. The contract is an expansion of their previous imagery-sharing agreement.

Orbital Insight develops analytics software using geospatial datasets, such as Planet’s imagery collections, providing timely intelligence to decision-makers across various industries. Now, Orbital Insight will have greater access to Planet’s daily, 3.7 meter resolution PlanetScope imagery, as well as 0.72 centimeter resolution SkySat imagery for any location on Earth. According to the release, the high-frequency revisit rate and broad geographic coverage of Planet’s imagery makes it well-suited to specific Orbital Insight use cases, including counting cars, trains, and ships, as well as monitoring commercial and residential real estate construction.

“Our goal is to build the best geospatial analytics in the world. To achieve that end, we rely on Planet as a key partner to provide high-quality satellite imagery,” said Orbital Insight Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Founder James Crawford.
