Case study: Ask
Media / Weather graphics systems

  • Germany

Ask – Innovative Visualisierungslösungen GmbH is a German company specialized in the development of customized solutions and services for the media and broadcasting industry.

The company’s flagship product is TriVis Weather Graphix, a software developed for the visualization of meteorological data for the media. Every day, several dozens of TV stations and weather services broadcast weather graphics produced with TriVis Weather Graphix.

TriVis Weather Graphix solution is based on a number of cartographic resources, including imagery base maps and elevation data.

The partnership with Ask

Ask has selected PlanetSAT 15 global imagery base map and PlanetDEM elevation data for Trivis Weather Graphix solution. PlanetSAT 15 imagery constitutes the 2D base map layer. Combining imagery with PlanetDEM elevation data is perfect for creating highly realistic 3D views. Imagery and elevation data are offered at different resolution levels, depending on the client’s requirements.

Ask benefits from the major cloud removal upgrade of PlanetSAT 15 global imagery base map. Thousands of square kilometers of clouds have been removed on all tropical areas, from Southeast Asia to Africa and South America. All users of Trivis Weather Graphics can easily overlay weather information on top of PlanetSAT 15 unique cloudless imagery.
