As announced at the beginning of the year, Planet Labs has now confirmed that the RapidEye constellation has retired, capturing its last magnificent images, which Planet Labs shared on 2 April 2020.

“While RapidEye satellites will no longer collect imagery for commercial or noncommercial use, their archive of impressive data will remain available to customers, and will be used and appreciated for years to come,” an announcement on the company’s website explained.

Current customers who use RapidEye imagery will now have the option to transition to the Next-Generation PlanetScope products, which will provide higher spatial resolution as well as continuity with the red, green, blue, near infrared and red-edge bands.
