Processing the Planet
Planet Labs operates a fleet of earth imaging satellites that aims to produce an unprecedented amount of earth imagery. The software stack at Planet Labs is a primarily Open Source at many levels. I will discuss our software stack from the satellite (in brief) through our data pipeline and client facing web services summarizing some lessons learned, strength of the general Open Source and FOSS4G stacks, and components for which we developed additional capabilities.
A particular focus will be offered on improvements and new components offered as Open Source and our experience in sharing open data with Amazon, MapBox and other parties.
