As always, eMap is focused on keeping our clients up-to-date on the newest geospatial products and services available. With that in mind, we are pleased to introduce a new product from our partner Intermap Technologies – “NEXTMap® World-10™” – the world’s only off-the-shelf digital elevation product currently available with a 10-meter ground sampling distance (GSD) and a 10-meter LE95 vertical accuracy.
This product includes options for both DSM (Digital Surface Model) and DTM (Digital Terrain Model). Currently, the DSM is available as an off-the-shelf product with international coverage. The DTMs are in production and available for custom projects. World-10 allows you to garner more information and view more terrain features than ever before. The data is available at competitive pricing with quick and easy delivery.
When looking at the comparison image at the top of this article, you will notice five red arrows. These arrows are pointing out some of the major differences that the higher quality resolution of the World-10™ DSM is able to provide over the SRTM90 data. In the bottom image, the four arrows to the right are pointing to trenches that are not visible with the lower resolution SRTM90. The arrow to the far left is pointing out a ridge that is more defined in the World-10™ image.
