  • Hi my name is Fehmi,


    I am Phd student at Necmettin Erbakan University Konya-Turkey


    I've been using the planet scope student account for over a year. Thanks to these images, I have done a lot of work and publications.

    Last year, you extended my account on 2022-01-31. Now my Ph.D. is continuing and last year, so if it is possible can you extend my account for one year. It is very important for me.


    Also, there was a devastating earthquake in our country today. I also need your images for use in damage assessment studies.


    You can find my current student certificate in the attachment.

    Can you help me

    Best regards
