Planet Labs is renamed just "Planet"...
Announcement - June 12, 2016 -- https://www.planet.com/pulse/meet-our-new-brand/

“Our product is information processing — real-time, fact-based data,” says Robbie Schlinger, co-founder of Planet Labs.

“The tides are changing on greenhouse-gas emissions, deforestation, and agricultural land use.”

Planet's "imagery-everywhere service" makes it possible for initiating and assisting with “a global measuring and verification system for carbon.”

By combining images of noticeable economic activity — and all major land change — such a program could be a “definitive, factual, unbiased account of the world’s carbon system.” The database can then help arbitrate an international cap-and-trade scheme or another global carbon-pricing system.

Planet Labs will soon have an image of every spot on the globe, updated at least once every day. This roughly 50-trillion-pixel portrait of Earth, daily made anew, will serve as both an incredibly valuable data resource for humanity and as Planet Labs’ flagship product.


... Assuming each spot on earth is photographed exactly once per day: (50 trillion pixels) and surface area of the earth is 200 million square miles = 250000 pixels/sq. mi. Assuming all pixels are equal, each one represents a box 10.5 ft x 10.5 ft
