  1. Are your Satellite Imagery Maps unique to Newport Geographic?

    Yes. Each map is designed in-house by Newport Geographic using the best of Cartography and Graphic Design principles.

    In most cases these maps are the only one of their type available anywhere. All our satellite imagery is derived from the best available seamless satellite data, frequently the most recent such data and is either cloud free or substantially cloud free. Additionally we enhance some of our satellite imagery datasets by making small global adjustments to brightness and contrast that make it significantly easier to distinguish natural features and we sometimes combine imagery from other satellites (for ocean bathymetry or polar ice for example), thereby making the imagery unique to Newport Geographic. We frequently produce maps using rare map projections, even map projections that we have developed in-house.


  2. What else is unique about Newport Geographic's products?

    Newport Geographic's satellite imagery map prints are the very best available and are not to be confused with the many earth from space posters that are available elsewhere.

    Our Giclee prints are far superior to any lithographic poster. They are superior in color vividness, image resolution, print resolution, paper quality and weight. Additionally, our print on demand process affords the customer a choice of print size and paper type. Posters on the other hand, are “one size fits all”. They cannot be customized or printed in the size of choice.

    Our wide format printing can produce prints 60” wide by any length, subject only to the size of the digital image. This is the largest size giclee print available today.

    We also offer a museum quality “ready-to-hang” option, namely Plaque Mounting.

    Printing maps and Satellite Art on tile and using them in tile murals is also unique to Newport Geographic.

    Only Newport Geographic offers fully customised Satellite Imagery Maps where place names or any other information can be added.


  3. Why would I buy your prints, plaques or tiles for decor?

    In short, when you want high quality decor that no one else has. If you are looking for high quality decor that is spectacular and out of the ordinary then you have come to the right place.The satellite imagery maps are developed in house by Newport Geographic and are intended for decor use, such as in office decor and hotel decor, corporate lobbies, attorneys offices, in churches or in exhibits. They are especially suitable for large spaces such as lobbies and boardrooms.

    The Plaque Mounted products are museum or gallery quality. They are both giclee quality and archival, printed with the most vivid of colors and at the highest possible resolution using the latest technologies and materials. They are available in sizes up to 48" x 96" (4ft x 8ft). Prints are available in sizes up to 58" by whatever length necessary.

    There are two types of ceramic tile products. Decorative tiles, which are suitable for indoor use, out of prolonged exposure to direct sunlight and Functional ceramic tiles which are kiln fired after being printed. These fired tiles use digital ceramic printing technology that is the most advanced system in the world for printing with ceramic chemistry. The printed, fired tiles are scratch proof, heat resistant and suitable for installation in the kitchen, the shower wall, outdoors or even in your swimming pool.

    For some decor ideas take a look at the gallery.
