TerraColor® Quality

The overall quality of a global satellite imagery dataset is extremely important. At Earthstar Geographics, we have produced what we believe to be an outstanding 15-meter global dataset with an excellent balance of price and quality. The correction of seamlines between images was a primary concern, and high quality datasets should be virtually seamless. Beware of competitors claiming to have the highest quality data that have not taken the time (or do not have the capability) to correct seamlines (see below).

In addition, colors should be vibrant yet realistic, and the dataset should exhibit consistent contrast, brightness and color balance across the entire globe. For example, deserts and high altitude coniferous forests should look similar in all places where they occur in the world. Because quality is a very important issue to us, we have provided full resolution sample imagery for you to download for comparison with other products without having to contact us. We would be glad to provide other samples upon request.
