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.
