Sinergise Acquisition and Useful Resources

Planet has acquired the business of Sinergise, including Sentinel Hub, marking a significant step forward in our mission to make Earth observation (EO) data more accessible and impactful. We are excited to welcome Sentinel Hub to the Planet Community, and are eager to accelerate investment in Europe, the development of EO data applications, and solutions for the planet.
