Planet Adds Planetary Variables Products to Sentinel Hub to Enable Greater Usability of its Earth Observation Data

Planet Labs PBC (NYSE: PL), a leading provider of daily data and insights about Earth, today announced that its Planetary Variables are now supported data layers in Sentinel Hub, allowing users to more easily perform analysis and generate insights. In August 2023, Planet acquired the business of Sinergise, including Sentinel Hub, marking a significant step forward in its mission to make Earth observation (EO) data more accessible and impactful.

Planetary Variables are pre-processed data feeds that measure important conditions on the surface of the Earth including: Soil Water Content, Land Surface Temperature, Crop Biomass, and Forest Structure. These four data feeds can now be delivered directly to the Sentinel Hub cloud to be integrated with all Sentinel Hub APIs, enabling users to seamlessly extract time series, perform multi-temporal processing, and stream imagery into applications. Sentinel Hub allows for users to scale their workflows on Planet’s cloud, allowing them to spend less time building and managing imagery infrastructure and more time building products and solutions that solve complex problems.

“The combination of Planetary Variables and Sentinel Hub will form the foundation of our Earth Data Platform, which we expect will empower a community of partners to build a wave of impactful Earth observation data applications,” said Kevin Weil, President of Product and Business at Planet. “I’m excited to see what our customers and partners can achieve with these combined data products, tooling, and platform capabilities that help them build innovative, data-driven solutions. Planetary Variables and Sentinel Hub together give partners superpowers to solve some of our planet's most pressing challenges across security and sustainability."

Sentinel Hub’s multi-temporal statistical analysis tools allow for users to efficiently extract insights from deep time stacks of data using cloud processing. With Planetary Variables added as a supported data layer in Sentinel Hub, users can now use these data feeds to: compare current and historical Soil Water Content to monitor drought and manage water resources more efficiently, leverage Crop Biomass to maximize agricultural output and detect discrete events like crop harvesting, and evaluate changes in Land Surface Temperatures to measure the effects of heat stress on crops or urban neighborhoods.

Planet’s integrated set of solutions aim to serve its partners and vertical clients to accelerate getting value out of its Earth observation data. To get started, visit Planet’s website.
