Satellite image products
One type of visualization I offer in addition to 3d earth views are satellite image mosaics. These images are designed to give a realistic and consistent impression of the earth surface color without clouds and other atmosphere effects. They can be used for interactive maps and applications as well as in print.
Most of the images offered here are the most up-to-date and highest quality products currently available regarding consistency of colors and uniformity in rendering with the respective coverage and resolution.
In addition to the images offered here some local image assemblies from specific dates can also be found in the general image catalog. Both these and the images here can also be produced on demand according to customer specifications. Contact me for details regarding this.
