Combining Remote Sensing & Analytics Technologies: Emerging Environmental Applications

1:10 PM - 1:35 PM
The past decade has seen an explosion in the availability of remotely sensed data, due in part to technological advances that have reduced the size and increased the number of Earth observation satellites. Parallel advances in machine learning and cloud computing have also enabled more correlations between insights from these datasets. In this session, we'll hear from Tara O'Shea, Director of Forest Programs at Planet, about what this means for emerging environmental and climate applications. In particular, Tara will highlight applications that combine Planet's unique global dataset with LiDAR data to create breakthrough capabilities in monitoring forest carbon stocks and emissions, mapping wildfire risk, and more.
