June 17, 2015 – Intermap Technologies, a Denver-based provider of geospatial solutions, has announced the release of NEXTMap World 10 Digital Elevation Model (DEM). NEXTMap World 10 is the only global digital elevation model available that incorporates the consistency of radar with the resolution of optical. It leverages the best of each technology and builds on the success of Intermap’s World 30 offering.
NEXTMap World 10 combines the best of ASTER and SRTM data for a higher resolution, more accurate product by leveraging its patent-pending data fusion technologies. This fusion has led to higher spatial content of the final DEM. World 10 also contains superior coastal behavior and improved accuracies due to enhanced ICESat processing of land and water boundaries.
“With Intermap’s new fusion technologies, World 10 represents the most advanced global digital surface model (DSM) product we have ever offered,” said Larry Malloy, Product Manager. “In high latitude regions, older products had lower accuracies due to either noise in the input data, or very low spatial content. With our new approach, Intermap is able to integrate high spatial content while eliminating noise.”
Intermap will continue to integrate the best available data, including the newly released SRTM30, throughout the lifespan of the product. Intermap also provides services to integrate customer supplied elevation data as well as creation of Digital Terrain Models (DTM) anywhere in the world for advanced terrain analysis.
World 10 can be used for diverse applications such as orthorectification, preliminary site engineering, and regional flood modeling. The entire world of 25,671 1-degree tiles, is ready for delivery.
