Focus on PlanetSAT 15 upgrades

Cloud removal

Check out the major cloud removal upgrade we’ve done for PlanetSAT 15 global imagery basemap, and discover before/after examples for particularly “difficult” tropical areas.

We’ve had to combine different Landsat scenes to reduce cloud cover in tropical regions, both in Southeast Asia, Africa and South America. To date, we’ve removed thousands of square kilometers of clouds.

The end-result: PlanetSAT 15 imagery basemap provides unique high quality geographic information!


Hundreds of cities across the world have been updated with fresh Landsat 8 imagery. Upgrades have been done for more than 250 places, i.e. capital cities and major urban areas on all continents.
