French imagery ready for your next project with MapTiler

Published Mar 31, 2021

High-resolution coverage of the entire France

We are glad to announce that the whole french open imagery is now included in the MapTiler Satellite basemap. Ready-to-use from our cloud infrastructure using MapTiler Maps API, we’re now also offering this imagery for self-hosting with MapTiler Server.

High-res aerial images of the entire France were tiled, color-toned, and seamlessly integrated in the MapTiler global satellite map.

More than half a million square kilometers of 20cm/px resolution aerial imagery has been processed and deployed to MapTiler Cloud, now available to all our users. One hundred départements available from the French government were tiled, color-toned and seamlessly integrated to MapTiler Satellite over the last year. The recent open data release by IGN (Institut Géographique National) allowed us to complete the processing over the full territory.

This new update perfectly complements the high-resolution aerial imagery already available in other countries including the USA, Japan, and most of the countries in Western Europe.

Our Satellite map now features the most recent high-resolution IGN orthophoto and can be accessed with a free MapTiler Cloud account, ready-to-use in your web, mobile or desktop applications. Subscribe to one of our paid plans for integration in your product or business.
