PlanetObserver service for ViaMichelin

Michelin Travel Partner has selected PlanetSAT 15 global imagery base map to be used as a backdrop in ViaMichelin web-mapping solution.

A close partnership has been set up with Michelin Travel Partner cartographic department in order to define how PlanetSAT 15 imagery had to be adapted. Out technical team has reprocessed the global PlanetSAT 15 imagery base map in order to adapt projection and tiling structure.

We’ve been able to satisfy the technical requirements for ViaMichelin web mapping solution. We have delivered ready-to-use files that could be directly implemented in ViaMichelin web mapping software.

ViaMichelin has also acquired PlanetDEM global elevation data that shall be used in different 3D projects, such as 3D visualization of geographical information or 3D fly-through animations.
