OneAtlas Basemap APIs

Welcome to our OneAtlas Basemap guides. You will quickly learn how to access the basemap, individual images over an AOI, to display them or integrate them with most commonly used JavaScript libraries and mobile.

Basemap is a worldwide off-the-shelf imagery layer made from Airbus highest-grade satellite imagery. Sharp and constantly refreshed, it provides the most reliable context to you.

  • Worldwide off-the-shelf layer: Complete and consistent coverage of all earth landmasses
  • Highest-grade only: Curated satellite imagery, with marginal cloud cover
  • Sharp: 1.5m over the world, 50cm over the most populated urban areas. Precisely geolocated
  • Fresh: New images every day, refreshed every year
