During our second AMA session, Tara O'Shea, the senior global director of Forests and Land use at Planet, discusses the applications of high-resolution imagery in forest and land use monitoring. She explains that Planet's data sets provide detailed information on changes in land cover and land use, allowing for better understanding of deforestation and its impacts. The higher resolution also enables the identification of canopy level details and better understanding of biomass and carbon storage potential. O'Shea also mentions the broadening user community and the increasing relevance of geospatial tools in sectors such as supply chain monitoring and insurance.

She highlights the NICFI Satellite Data Program, a partnership between Planet and Norway's International Climate and Forest Initiative, which aims to reduce tropical forest loss. O'Shea shares examples of how Planet's data is used for environmental compliance requirements and expresses excitement about the future of geospatial products and their potential to address sustainability and climate challenges.
