The most up-to-date open data satellite map in the world

Terramonitor is a space data company and we produce space data based analysis and monitoring services. Our technology is based on the satellite data processing chains, automatic image scanning and multi-source data merging. As a result of this data process, we create new information to support our customers’ decisions and processes.

WMS and WMTS integration quick guide

Terramonitor WMS and WMTS layers can be integrated to different GIS platforms over the Internet. This happens by connecting a GIS client to our map server. The Terramonitor Map Server operates at maps.terramonitor.com, and its specific endpoints are listed here.

Authentication is handled using an access token. You can get an access token by subscribing to Terramonitor Pro here.

Loading Imagery
To add Terramonitor in QGIS via WMS:

1. Open QGIS. Click on the Layer menu, select Add Layer, and choose Add WMS/WMTS Layer...
2. In the Add Layer(s) from a WM(T)S Server window, click New.
3. In the Create a new WMS connection window:
    At Name, enter Terramonitor.
    At URL, enter the WMS endpoint including your access token:
    https://maps.terramonitor.com/$ACCESS_TOKEN/pro/wms
    Click OK.
4. In the Add Layer(s) from a WM(T)S Server window, click Connect.
5. Choose a map layer by clicking on it. All layers cover land areas globally.
NOTE: If you are using WMS endpoint, select from Image encoding: PNG for date layers (e.g. True color date) and JPEG for other layers (e.g. True color).

The Terramonitor true color WMS layer can be added to Leaflet using the following code:

var rgb = L.tileLayer.wms('https://maps.terramonitor.com/$ACCESS_TOKEN/pro/wms', {
    layers: 'rgb',
    format: 'image/jpeg'
}).addTo(map);

A complete example on how Terramonitor Pro layers are added to Leaflet using HTML and JavaScript is presented in this jsFiddle.

Tech specs

Terramonitor map layers may be viewed using a web browser or integrated to a GIS client. For integration, we offer map layers in widely supported WMS and WMTS protocols. We also support CORS, meaning Terra Monitor map layers may be integrated directly to third party web browser clients.

The Terramonitor web browser interface supports all modern browsers, including Internet Explorer 11, Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Safari 5+. It requires support for cookies and JavaScript.

Terramonitor Pro plan is limited to 20 GB of monthly data transfer which covers up to 200 hours of active map use. This means one plan supports normal daily usage of tens of users. Monthly data usage is monitored with Google Analytics. The amount of data exceeding the monthly plan is billed separately at 1GB accuracy in the same proportion as the price on yearly or monthly plan. You can check your own monthly data use from your Dashboard. Contact us if you need to support hundreds of users or more.

Integration to External GIS Clients
Integrating Terramonitor map tiles to external clients is included in the Pro plan. We support integration using an access token that is available via the web interface dashboard. Terramonitor map layers may also be integrated via HTTP Basic Authorization. In this case, the authorization credentials are the same as the web interface credentials.

Map layers over WMS may be requested in either PNG or JPEG format. We recommend PNG for best quality, but requesting in JPEG format will halve required bandwidth. Map layers over WMTS are always in PNG format.

Our native and recommended tile size is 256 by 256 pixels. Larger tiles reduce request overhead, but result in a less fluid user experience.Tiles of 256 by 256 pixels in PNG format are from 50kB to 100kB on average, and half of this in JPEG format.

Date layers are designed to be used as overlay layers and the tiles are mostly transparent. This is why they should always be requested in PNG format, that supports transparency. They are only a few kilobytes in size and size shouldn’t be an issue.

The Terramonitor Vegetation heatmap layer includes a legend.

Terramonitor Layers
Terramonitor Free and Pro plan include the following layers covering land areas globally

Terramonitor Fusion and Terramonitor Fusion IR
An AI-powered fusion of remote sensing data, seeking the best combination of spatial, spectral, radiometric and temporal resolution. Terramonitor Fusion provides a natural color map with RGB channels. Terramonitor Fusion IR provides a false color map with NIR, R, G channels.

Terramonitor Recent and Terramonitor Recent IR
Guaranteed up-to-date satellite maps with a fixed pixel resolution. Terramonitor Recent provides a natural color map with RGB channels. Terramonitor Recent IR provides a false color map with NIR, R, G channels.

Terramonitor History
Historical satellite map for temporal analysis. Natural color map older than the one provided by Terramonitor Recent.

Terramonitor Vegetation
A vegetation heatmap of photosynthetic activity. Maximum vegetation index during the past 12 months on a scale of blue-green-yellow-red. Blue denotes low vegetation and red denotes high vegetation.

Terramonitor Fusion date, Terramonitor Recent date, Terramonitor History date and Terramonitor Vegetation date
Partially transparent date layers representing the acquisition date of corresponding layers. Terramonitor Fusion date holds for Terramonitor Fusion and Terramonitor Fusion IR, Terramonitor Recent date  for Terramonitor Recent and Terramonitor Recent IR, Terramonitor History date for Terramonitor History, and Terramonitor Vegetation date for Terramonitor Vegetation.
