Geoplex will work with clients in these regions to leverage Planet Labs’ satellite imagery in markets including emergency management, agriculture and forestry. Daily imagery provides information for reactive response in disaster relief by enabling immediate visibility of changes in a disaster area. Farhad Vladi, Chairman for MapAction, a customer of Geoplex, explains: “Accurate satellite data can sometimes mean the difference between life and death when coordinating emergency relief operations out in the field. By creating a clearer and more up-to-date picture of the aftermath of natural and humanitarian disaster areas, Planet Labs allows organizations such as MapAction to respond effectively, and ultimately ensure that aid can be delivered quickly to the people who need it most.”
Planet Labs is excited to be working with Geoplex team and can’t wait to see how they put our imagery data to use.
