Planet provides access to a daily snapshot of the Earth’s land surfaces and coastal areas. If you would like access, please fill out this form. First check to see if you are part of a lab on campus that has its own Planet group, which can be found listed below. If you would like to create a sub-organization for your lab, there is an option on the form. You will be asked to re-register each spring.
If you already have an existing Planet Labs account associated with your @ucsb.edu email, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org first, so we can have Planet grandfather your account into our organization.
More information about the imagery is below the video.
