          Planet Basemaps

          Power your applications and analytics with seamless Planet Basemaps built from the most recent imagery over broad areas. With daily, global imaging, Planet selects the best pixels and transforms them into visually consistent and scientifically accurate mosaics that empower time-series analysis and machine learning-powered analytics.

          Leveraging cutting-edge software upon imagery from the world’s largest satellite constellation, Planet transforms raw pixels into visually consistent and scientifically precise mosaics over broad areas, creating the most current, complete, and analysis-ready basemaps on the market.

          Satellite imagery mosaics have long been stapled products used in geospatial analysis. But the exponential increase and availability of satellite imagery make their use more relevant today than ever. Planet has automated a number of most current satellite map preprocessing steps to help our customers take full advantage of global, high-frequency imagery. The result is Planet Basemaps, the most recent, complete, and analysis-ready mosaics for monitoring change over broad areas. 

          Planet Basemaps empowers customers with a timely, visually consistent, and objective “source of truth” for insights over broad areas and diverse geographies.

          How to choose the best Planet Basemap Select for your project?

          Step 1

          Select desired area of interest

          Step 2

          Visual (RBG) or Surface Reflectance?

          Step 3

          Weekly, monthly, quarterly?

          Step 4

          Web streaming or download?

          Step 5

          High or very-high resolution?

          Step 1: Select area

          Select your study area - or multiple areas of interest, according to your application.

          Step 2: Select imagery type

          You can go either with visual basemaps or with surface reflectance basemaps. Visual Basemaps are color-corrected basemaps, something that minimizes the effects of cloud, haze, and other image variables. Surface Reflectance Basemaps are basemaps with minimized atmospheric effects and enhanced pixel accuracy, suitable for further spectral analysis.

          Step 3: Select update frequency

          You can choose between quarterly, monthly, or weekly updates for your area of interest.

          Step 4: Select delivery type

          Depending on your project, you can select either to stream the basemaps only for visualization purposes, e.g. for a webGIS application or download them for further local processing. Or both.

          Step 5: Select spatial resolution

          You can select between high or very-high resolution basemaps. High-resolution basemaps are generated from PlanetScope imagery and delivered at 4.7m spatial resolution, whereas the very-high resolution basemaps are generated from SkySat imagery and are delivered at 0.59m.

          Key features

          Accurate, up-to-date geospatial data, with availability off-the-shelf or custom-built.

          Gain insights over broad areas and diverse geographies for time series analysis and data analytics.

          Ready to use with popular GIS applications, including ArcGIS and QGIS.

          Access areas that are difficult to visualize due to consistent cloud coverage.

          Seasonally color-balanced, seamless, cloud-free image mosaics.

          Mosaics are pre-processed into gridded GeoTIFFS for download.

          Key applications


          Land use and change detection mapping

          Locating construction and building alteration

          Basemap for visual reference


          Number of plants optimization per unit of area

          Drought monitoring

          Crop condition analysis and stress detection


          Sea ice monitoring

          Coastline digitization and monitoring

          Shallow waters seafloor mapping


          Monitor evolving landscapes and infrastructure over time and derive insights from advanced analytics over large regions. Visual Basemaps give you the power to define what you need, where you need it, and how often – without sacrificing coverage or quality.

          Some key reasons to choose Visual Basemaps:

          • Seasonally color-balanced, seamless, cloud-free

          • Spatially accurate data with minimized haze, light, and topographic effects

          • Suited for computer vision analytics

          This product leverages advanced image processing techniques on PlanetScope imagery to remove atmospheric effects, optimize pixel accuracy, and empower deep spectral and quantitative analysis.

          Some key reasons to choose Surface Reflectance Basemaps:

          • Optimized for pixel accuracy to inform robust quantitative analysis

          • Minimized effects of atmosphere and sensor characteristics to reflect ground truth

          • Suited for a variety of vegetation indices, including NDVI, EVL, NDWI, and more

          One of the advantages of having persistent coverage over Earth’s landmass is that Planet can offer Basemaps that are refreshed on a quarterly, monthly, weekly, or even biweekly basis. That means you’ll have the most recent view of changing ground conditions. For the Global Basemap, the update is performed annually.

          In case more than one AOI is required, you can either include it in the uploaded shapefile or contact us for a custom order tailored to your needs.
