Live Webinar: Dive Deeper into Planet Imagery Using Spectral Indices

Gain deeper insight from Planet imagery and enhance your organization’s workflows using spectral indices.

Date: Wednesday, September 22nd, 2021
Time: 11:00am - 12:00pm ET

Gain deeper insight from Planet imagery and enhance your organization’s workflows using spectral indices. Spectral indices are combinations of different wavelengths from multi-spectral imagery to highlight and identify specific features. While vegetation indices, such as the normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI), are the most common there are a wide range of spectral indices for varied use cases across the federal government, Department of Defense, and intelligence community.

Land cover classification, soil classification, vegetation health detection, phenological change, water detection, and water levels & usage are some of the use cases aided by applying spectral indices to Planet’s multi-spectral 4- and 8-band imagery.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • The value spectral indices bring to your mission and workflow
  • Different types of spectral indices and when to use them
  • Creating spectral indices using band math
  • Spectral indices use case examples
  • How users can utilize spectral analysis quickly within Planet Explorer
  • Planet’s roadmap for 8-band and hyperspectral imagery
