PlanetObserver and Kalisio have revealed My Planet Maps, a new subscription-based online map service that delivers immediate streaming access to fresh and global data. It includes performant vector and raster georeferenced basemaps. By accessing data through a reliable web map service, users save the costs of handling, storing and updating their data products internally.
My Planet Maps provides a quick and easy streaming access to quality global mapping content, updated regularly. Maps include 10-metre global imagery, 50cm and 20cm orthophotos for France, and global OpenStreetMap basemaps available in different styles.
Premium global imagery basemap, produced by PlanetObserver, is at the core of My Planet Maps. Thanks to enhanced colour processing techniques, the global basemap offers a seamless visual experience down to 10-metre resolution. It provides rich and reliable geographical context updated annually. Furthermore, it is combined with the most recent high-resolution aerial photography of whole France recently released by IGN (French National Geographic Institute) that provides highly detailed geographical information.
In addition, a set of global vector maps in different styles complements the platform to provide a full user experience. Moreover, a hybrid layer combining imagery and vector data provides a detailed reference map for the world. All layers can be monitored and communicate relevant activity in any location around the globe.
Integration into GIS workflows
My Planet Maps users can easily connect their GIS applications (ArcGIS, QGIS, etc.) and professional applications to the platform. Imagery and vector data are accessible through a full suite of OGC-standard web services (WMS, WMTS, TMS). That significantly simplifies the discovery and integration of high-quality data. The platform, developed by Kalisio, is already used by Airbus and IRSN (French Radioprotection and Nuclear Safety Institute). Most importantly, users are fully satisfied with their daily access to the service and appreciate its reliability.
With the new online map service, users are well equipped to combine reliable global imagery and vector basemaps available in the platform with their own authoritative content and analysis environments.
My Planet Maps is developed for a wide range of geospatial projects. For example, it is well-adapted for supporting mapping, planning missions and operations, managing land, monitoring assets and more. It helps users in their missions across a number of industries from defence and intelligence, land administration and mapping, to energy, civil engineering and infrastructures.
