Clermont-Ferrand – France, 24/10/14-A The company PlanetObserver is happy to present the v4.2 of PlanetSAT 15 global imagery product with up-to-date and cloudless data.
PlanetSAT 15 is a unique global basemap with 15-meter resolution offering very high visual quality and advanced colour balance, together with recognized geometrical accuracy.
The v4.2 of PlanetSAT 15 natural colour global mosaic presents two major benefits:
- Up-to-date imagery from 2013 and 2014 for hundreds of cities across the world;
- Cloudless data, even in tropical regions of Southeast Asia, Africa and South America.
Originally processed from Landsat 7 data, PlanetSAT 15 has been updated with many recent Landsat 8 images. Hundreds of cities across the world have been refreshed with satellite imagery from 2013 and 2014.
Another major breakthrough concerns the removal of thousands of square kilometers of clouds on all emerged lands. To achieve this huge task, hundreds of raw Landsat scenes have been carefully selected, millions of pixels have been processed and merged seamless and homogeneously in PlanetSAT 15 product.
