Have you searched for medium resolution imagery in Image Hunter recently? If so, you have surely seen lots of imagery from the 3-meter (m) satellite constellation, PlanetScope. As one of the most ubiquitous medium-resolution options, PlanetScope uses over a hundred forty satellites (and counting!) to compile a gigantic archive of imagery spanning the entire globe.
With so many satellites available in our archive of imagery, you may be wondering: “What are the key benefits of PlanetScope data?” Great question! For one, PlanetScope and its 140+ fleet of Dove satellites can make daily revisits to any location on Earth. On top of that, the collection capacity is up to 20,000 square kilometers (sq km) per Dove satellite, per orbit! This means tons of medium-resolution imagery collected over sites that other satellites in our archive may have missed, making PlanetScope a great choice for projects involving narrow timeframes.
But that’s not all! Perhaps the most impressive feature of PlanetScope is not the huge collection capacity or daily revisits, but its price. At $1.28 per sq km, PlanetScope is hard to beat if dollars spent are a key factor of your imagery needs. This is especially true with regards to tasking (or a new collection of imagery), what a deal!
We know that imagery needs can change at any moment and from project to project. If you’d like to learn more about our pricing options and other available satellites, ask us for our latest satellite imagery price list by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
