The VANE Global Base Map is the easiest way to start working with satellite imagery. Developers can choose from the number of presets (like True color, Urban false color, etc.) and inbuilt operations (so-called indices).

To connect your web application to VANE Base Map you need to go through three steps - just that:

  1. Get your API key at http://home.owm.io/api_keys (if you already have the one from Openweathermap API - you can use it)
  2. Go to examples and choose your preferable one at the Base Map description page.
  3. Copy the URL template for appropriate Base Map example that then can be used as a tile layer in a various number of libraries and mapping applications.

The example URL for "True color" RGB:

http://{s}.sat.owm.io/sql/{z}/{x}/{y}?appid={APIKEY}&select=b4,b3,b2&from=all&order=best&color=log,gamma:1.2
