To help fight against deforestation and climate change, everyone can access Planet’s high-resolution optical satellite imagery of the world’s tropics through the NICFI Satellite Data Program. In this section of the community you can find stories of NICFI users and see highlights of how NICFI data is used in different applications around the world.

Check out one of the user stories recently shared on Planet Community about monitoring illegal activities in Colombia.
