Esri UK and Planet Partner to Reveal Global Change with Unprecedented Visualisation and Analytics
Esri UK is today announcing the extension of their channel partner ecosystem through a new partnership with Planet, a global leader in the provision of Earth imagery. The agreement will enable Esri UK to resell Planet imagery alongside powerful Esri ArcGIS visualisation and analytical tools.
Esri’s commitment to helping solve some of the world’s most difficult problems aligns with Planet’s mission to image the entire Earth every day and make global change visible, accessible and actionable.
The partnership will leverage the existing technical integration announced at last year’s Esri User Conference by Planet CEO Will Marshall. Customers will be able to easily access, view and download Planet Basemaps from within their workflow for deep-level analysis using ArcGIS Pro geoprocessing tools. They will be able to build models, perform raster operations and apply machine learning to Planet’s analysis ready imagery data.
This powerful partnership will help customers maximise their investment in both GIS and imagery by providing a single solution for software and data.
“Esri UK is delighted to extend our data reseller network to provide our customers with easy access to Planet imagery. Esri’s imagery analysis and change detection marries perfectly with Planet’s mission to make global change visible, accessible and actionable,” says James Harvey, Esri UK’s Partner Content Manager. “This partnership will provide our customers with business advantages through a greater understanding of where, why and when things happen. We look forward to working with Planet to ensure the future success of this partnership.”
“Planet is excited to be a part of the Esri reseller network in the UK,” says Jason Jones, Director of Channels and Alliances EMEA at Planet. “We look forward to helping Esri UK unleash the potential of Planet data in every industry, providing easy access, high-cadence imagery to the GIS community.”
