Not all imagery basemaps are created equal—and precision mapping demands basemaps with advanced qualities, such as textural and year-to-year locational consistency.
Maxar’s Vicki Bassett takes you behind the scenes to show you how imagery basemaps are made and why currency and consistency in clarity and accuracy are paramount when choosing an image layer.
