Media

When PlanetObserver was set up, the media sector was the company’s major target market for all satellite imagery products. Press and publishing were craving for satellite images featuring planet Earth. It was the early 90’s! Since then, this sector has gone through many changes. With the internet revolution, digital technology has become the new standard of the media industry.

PlanetObserver has adapted both its company vision and its offering to those technological changes. The company is positioned today as the provider of high quality and customized satellite images and 3D data for the media industry.
