Customers now have the opportunity to purchase data that enables a wide variety of applications and efficiently perform geospatial analyses.
NEXTMap World 30 is built using corrected public data as the input source and offers users high performance accuracy and versatility. The World 30 digital surface model has a 30-meter ground sampling distance and filled voids that will give users the accuracy they need in industries such as agriculture, telecommunications, energy, risk planning, water management, defense, military, and a host of government services.
The strength of this partnership is that BlackBridge’s RapidEye imagery and Intermap’s World 30 data are very complimentary with each other. Intermap’s World 30 data add an extra degree of accuracy to the orthorectification of RapidEye imagery while providing an excellent data source to use in terrain draping for visual simulation or other modeling applications. The use of RapidEye imagery allows for the inclusion of a visual and spectral component to the terrain data when doing analysis of geologic hazards, disaster monitoring, or cartographic applications.
