The new integration to GeoSage Basemaps allows broadcasters to access a comprehensive database of medium-resolution satellite imagery.
When breaking news happens, access to global satellite imagery is essential to journalists. Viz World, the broadcast industry’s standard software for the creation of branded and animated 3D maps, has integrated with GeoSage World Basemaps giving broadcasters the ability to virtually go anywhere in the world. All satellite imagery has been carefully processed by GeoSage providing broadcasters unified coloring and quality.
"We are very pleased that after extensive evaluation the Viz World technical team has adopted our world basemaps as part of their innovative content offering" said Jennifer Tao, Business Manager at GeoSage.
The new data packages include GeoSage's unique world basemaps and combine satellite imagery (30, 60 and 120 meter resolution), high resolution digital elevation model (DEM) as well as street vector data from OpenStreetMap. This combination gives broadcasters the flexibility to generate high quality 3D animated maps for any location.
