Clermont-Ferrand, 12 October 2016 – The French company PlanetObserver, specialized in imagery basemap production for more than 25 years, announced today the coverage of Asia with PlanetSAT 15 L8 basemap, that covers now 40% of the Earth’s land mass.
Processed with fresh Landsat 8 source data, PlanetSAT 15 L8 is a unique natural colour imagery basemap that offers highly detailed, seamless and cloudless geographic information, perfect for 1:50,000 scale mapping.
Landsat 8 source data are carefully selected according to precise specifications, in particular concerning season and cloud cover. With PlanetObserver internal data processing chain, satellite images are assembled and processed homogeneously with high-quality colour balance. Processed exclusively in natural colours (RGB channels), PlanetSAT 15 L8 basemap is the product closest to the Earth true colours.
Production of PlanetSAT 15 L8 imagery basemap goes at a rapid pace. Further to the coverage of Northern Africa, Middle East, Central Asia, India and Australia, PlanetObserver has finalised Asia that includes China, Mongolia, Korean peninsula and Japan. Western Europe will be ready for delivery early 2017. Our roadmap for end of 2017: North America, South America, and Southern Africa.
For all projects requiring a global basemap, PlanetSAT 15 L8 imagery can be easily combined with PlanetSAT 15 global basemap processed by PlanetObserver with multisource data (Landsat 7 and Landsat 8).
