Planet “See Change, Change the World” Challenge
Planet was looking for new solutions that combine Copernicus data with Planet’s global imagery to solve important sustainable development challenges faced by today’s population.
Planet is strongly committed to the Sustainable Development Goals, the most ambitious development agenda ever. Creative solutions that use Planet data, complemented by other data sources such as the Copernicus programme and additional data sources, can play a crucial role in reaching the world’s collective goals. The most compelling solutions should have a strong technical underpinning, be feasible and achievable.
Planet has identified the following areas of interest for participants to focus on:
Submissions are not limited to the above mentioned. Solutions that
propose Planet imagery in combination with Copernicus data for
sustainable development are also welcome.
Planet will provide the winner with an opportunity to finalise their solution and bring it to market. This includes the following prize details:
Submissions to Planet “See Change, Change the World” Challenge will be assessed against the following criteria:
Does this solution contribute toward the sustainable development of our planet?
Is the solution a novel and ground breaking application of Planet data?
Planet and Copernicus Connection
Does the solution use both Planet data and Copernicus data to create added-value?
Does the solution present a viable business model that considers the cost of operations and Planet imagery?
Founded in 2010 by a team of ex-NASA scientists, Planet is driven by a mission to image the entire Earth every day, and make Earth’s changes visible, accessible and actionable. Planet started as a small team of physicists, aerospace and mechanical engineers in a garage, using the cube sat form-factor to inform the first designs of the Dove satellite. Just six years after their first satellite entered space, Planet now operates the largest constellation of Earth-imaging satellites… ever. Their satellites are collecting a radical new data set with endless, real-world applications. Whether one is measuring agricultural yields, monitoring natural resources, or aiding first responders after natural disasters, Planet’s data is here to lend businesses and humanitarian organizations a helping hand. Planet believes timely, global imagery will empower informed, deliberate and meaningful stewardship of our planet.
