Airbus Basemap (Download)

Airbus Basemap layer in GeoTIFF format.

Description

Airbus Basemap (Download) provides 1.5 m SPOT imagery globally and 0.5 m Pléiades imagery for major urban areas. The data output is provided in GeoTIFF format.

Businesses, governments and institutions rely more and more on geolocalised information. To take informed decisions, prepare effective action plans or monitor missions, they use a basemap to visualize the context that surrounds their people and assets on the ground.

When the stakes are high, this context has to be sharp, fresh and consistent. The Airbus Basemap is built with this goal in mind: Airbus commits to consistently deliver the most reliable satellite imagery basemap to their customers.
