Airbus Basemap

Provides a high-resolution basemap layer from Airbus data.


This block provides a high-resolution basemap, either as downloaded or streamed product. The basemap consists of images that are acquired by Pléiades and SPOT 6/7 and is constantly updated.

Dataset description

The OneAtlas Basemap is a global imagery layer made from high-resolution images captured by the satellite constellations of Airbus (Pléiades and SPOT 6/7). The OneAtlas Basemap offers a high-resolution complete coverage for the whole world with new images being added every day. Images have a small cloud cover. For more information, please refer to the Airbus website.

OneAtlas orders the imagery layers first by constellation (starting with Pléiades). For each constellation, it then orders imagery layers by acquisition date.


Please note that the acquisition date and other metadata are displayed in the file data.json, which is generated along with the downloaded OneAtlas basemap image:


Based on your selected AOI, tiles from different imagery layers are delivered to cover the AOI. The final metadata file only includes the information for the most recent imagery layer.

The smaller the zoom level, the larger the tiles and the larger the credit consumption (the pricing is per km2). We strongly advise not changing the zoom level value during job configuration.
