  1. Virtually Cloud-free: PlanetSAT 10m imagery basemap offers an impressive cloud-free coverage of over 95% across the Earth’s surface, with only scattered cloud cover remaining in tropical regions. Our unique methodology leverages seasonal data to procure the best cloud-free imagery for each continent. Unlike common practices that alter cloudy areas’ colors to create a uniform appearance, our approach prioritizes data integrity.At each annual update, we meticulously source and integrate 100% cloud-free imagery into the basemap. This commitment ensures that our clients receive accurate and up-to-date geographic information, even in regions with complex cloud dynamics.

By strategically choosing imagery from these seasons, we guarantee a seamless transition and consistency in colors throughout the entire basemap. This meticulous approach not only enhances the visual appeal but also offers a more unified understanding of geographic features across diverse regions.
