Boundless Announces Strategic Partnership with Planet to Expand Imagery Ecosystem

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- May 31, 2017 -- Boundless, the leader in open GIS, today announced a strategic partnership with Planet, the integrated aerospace and data analytics company that operates history's largest fleet of Earth-imaging satellites. This partnership enables Boundless customers to access the massive library of high-quality Planet imagery and fast-loading imagery basemaps within the Boundless Connect ecosystem.

"This partnership significantly advances the content available through Boundless Connect, and expands our ability to provide high-quality imagery to Boundless users," said Anthony Calamito, vice president of product for Boundless. "This represents a major step forward in providing our growing user base with valuable insights through Planet's content. We are excited about this partnership and all the capabilities that will be delivered to our users, now and in the future."

Starting today, Boundless Desktop users can easily access this content through the Boundless Connect plugin. Planet content is also accessible through Boundless Suite and Exchange subscriptions. The partnership with Planet will provide access to:

  • Basemaps -- Automated basemaps optimized for clear seasonal coverage, completeness and visual quality, perfect for map backdrops. In addition, quarterly or monthly timelapse basemaps gives users access to the latest imagery.
  • Image Tiles from PlanetScope -- 4-band (RGB and NIR) imagery for visual or analytic use.
  • Image Tiles from RapidEye -- 5-band (RGB, NIR, and Red Edge) imagery for visual and analytic use.

"This partnership is a huge step forward in delivering the most extensive and up-to-date satellite imagery catalog and basemaps to the broader geospatial community," said Alex Bakir, vice president of product marketing for Planet. "Boundless' open, flexible platform pairs perfectly with Planet's data and platform services, and gives Boundless users the tools and content needed to integrate seamlessly into their workflows. We are very excited to be working with Boundless and look forward to what is to come."
