December 12th It’s a Remote Sensing Christmas with Planet at the Calgary GoGeomatics Social

Andrew Pylypchuk Account Executive at Planet

The Calgary GoGeomatics group is delighted to announce we will be hosting Andrew Pylypchuk from Planet, who will be discussing the recent accomplishment of one of their founding objectives: Mission 1 – to image the entirety of the Earth’s landmass every single day. RSVP using our Meetup Group.

 

When: Tuesday, December 12, 2017, from 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM
Where: Meetup Brewster’s – 834 11 Ave SW, Calgary, AB
Who: You silly, everyone is invited to this free networking event

Mr. Pylypchuk is currently an Account Executive working with Planet. His career has origins in the remote sensing industry in the province of British Columbia and has since worked with generating imagery databases, project management, and regional sales. Today, Mr. Pylypchuk has more than 15 years in the geospatial industry and recognizes how to combine both business development and product management to cultivate and provide customer-orientated solutions; his expertise has helped drive growth for both Planet’s partners and clients.

Planets Labs originated back in 2010 in a garage in Cupertino, launched by a team of ex-NASA scientists – Mission 1 was the principal goal at the early development stages for the company, meaning they needed to build the satellites and systems, secure the launches, and capture data on a daily basis at high resolution. Along with this, one of the principal notions of this mission was to make this data easily available to anyone who wished to work with the data. To gather this information, Planet designs and manufactures Triple-CubeSat miniature satellites called Doves, which form a satellite constellation that provides imagery of the Earth at 3-5m optical resolution. The imagery collected through this platform provides relevant information that can be utilized in many industries, such as climate monitoring, crop yield prediction, urban planning, and disaster response.

We hope that you will join us for this presentation celebrating a spectacular achievement in the geospatial industry. Please RSVP using our Meetup group!
