GODAN Partner Radiant Earth Foundation has announced the launch of their platform (app.radiant.earth) to the public. Now anyone can log on, browse satellite imagery, perform analyses, and create projects for free.
Radiant Earth Foundation is a non-profit organization committed to aggregating the world’s open Earth imagery and providing access and education on its use to the global development community. Through its open platform, Radiant Earth Foundation allows people to search, discover, and analyze a growing collection of satellite, aerial, and drone data on the cloud—instantly, securely, and for free. It provides Earth imagery and geospatial tools to the global development community to solve today’s most pressing problems.
Users can access imagery from numerous cloud-integrated sources such as NASA/USGS Landsat 4,5,7 and 8 satellites; the European Space Agency’s Sentinel-2A and 2B; the NASA MODIS (Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) sensor on the Terra and Aqua satellites; NASA ISERV camera on board International Space Station; commercial imagery from Planet; and any satellite, airborne or drone imagery that a user provides via an easy user interface or a powerful application program interface (API). Users can also integrate non-imagery data, including air quality, population, and weather statistics using the API.
Another feature of the platform is multi-organization collaboration, allowing users to create virtual teams across organizations.
Join Radiant Earth Foundation’s Lead Geospatial Data Scientist Dr. Hamed Alemohammad and Geospatial Software Engineer Alando Ballantyne as they demonstrate the platform's advanced analytical methods and tools in a Webinar on Thursday 25th October, 2018 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM BST. Topics to be covered include an overview of our API (python and non-raster APIs available via doc.radiant.earth), API endpoints and how to use them, How to extract/ export, Annotations, and Machine Learning, and more. A Q&A session will be held about the API capabilities.
