"We selected PlanetObserver global imagery basemap to create a new virtual World Data Base for Thales Full Flight Simulators. The product met our main criteria which were: enhanced color quality of the imagery, up-to-date data, and standard formats ready-to-use in our solutions."
Manager, Thales Training & Simulation
"We have successfully updated the Airbus OneAtlas Basemap with PlanetSAT Global imagery mosaic. It must be said that it has surpassed our expectations. We really like the enhancements that the medium resolution imagery layer has brought to OneAtlas Basemap services in terms of global overview and the more homogenous transition from lower to higher zoom levels. Their product has really improved the user experience."
Product Manager OneAtlas Basemap, Airbus DS
"We’re very happy with PlanetObserver satellite images. The standard products are easy to implement in our solutions and their team is very helpful for all our special requests. They provide constant support and very fast product deliveries for all our projects."
