The map is an entertaining way to discover the areas within the territory. The Atlantic coast, the Loire and its estuary and the city of Nantes are the most easily identifiable features. Thanks to the image's 1.5m resolution, shipyards, vineyards, Grand-Lieu Lake and marshes, market gardens and flax plantations, as well as Nantes-Atlantique international airport can also all be seen.
The Great Mosaic of Loire-Atlantique
Installed on the floor, at over 45km², a huge SPOT 6/7 mosaic shows the French Loire-Atlantique region at a scale of 1:20,000. The image was unveiled on 30 May 2018 in the entrance hall of Loire-Atlantique Departmental Agency, a public engineering organisation offering multi-disciplinary expertise to build a quality living environment for the inhabitants of Loire-Atlantique.
An Entertaining Way to Discover the Areas
Landscape Workshops for Schoolchildren
Theme-based panels focusing on geography, human settlement, landscape units and administrative organisation highlight some of the key points and the particulars of the area.
This educational material is provided by the CAUE (Council for Architecture, Urban Planning and the Environment), which carries out its public information and awareness mission within the Loire-Atlantique Departmental Agency. This tremendous tool will be used to run landscape workshops for schoolchildren starting in 2019.
"By providing a general view, the satellite image is an original way of seeing and understanding the dynamics of a territory at the heart of today's energy, digital, demographic and ecological transitions."

Innovation Benefiting Mapping and the EnvironmentFive years ago, SPOT 6 entered orbit
SPOT 6 was the first satellite constellation entirely designed, financed, built and operated by a private company to enter the Earth observation market. This Airbus initiative is now repeated with the investment in the Pléiades NEO Constellation.
Instant Tasking of Satellites Using OneNow OptionAfter devastating floods and landslides in Serbia, the BEWARE team needed detailed satellite based intelligence to produce an accurate assessment of the situation on the ground. One Tasking’s OneNow product was selected as the right imaging product for job, offering instant tasking of a satellite with a high priority.
Fundão Dam Failing BrazilThrough its partnership with The International Charter ‘Space and Major Disasters’, Airbus tasked Pléiades satellite constellation, using its unique OneNow option, to retrieve images of the area surrounding the Fundão mining dam, in order to identify the extent of the disaster and help the response activity.
