WorldDEM™ and WorldDEM™ Neo

The most accurate global satellite-based digital elevation models available today! With unique data quality and level of detail, both elevation models facilitate a wide range of applications such as line-of-sight-analysis, hydrological modelling, satellite imagery orthorectification and much more.

3D Textured Model

3D Textured Model - Visualises the world in 3D. Derived from very high- resolution optical imagery, this opens up new possibilities for rapid highly detailed reconstruction and visualisation of large areas. Supports planning and the decision-making process across many of your markets such as mapping, defence, civil engineering, safety and security, insurance and risk management.

Elevation 1& 4 Digital Elevation Models deliver highly precise altrimetric information and are the best choice for infrastructure and engineering projects.

Airbus Ground Control Points

Airbus Ground Control Points (GCPs) – are highly accurate 3D coordinates, essential for precise ortho-rectification of aerial, optical satellite images and drone data. They precisely localise ground features and landmarks for mission planning, support the calibration and validation of topo mapping and mobile mapping data for HD maps.

"We are amazed with the accuracy of the Airbus GCPs and that we can harmonise them so well with other data sources. Without the GCPs, we would not be able to complete this huge project in the allotted time frame."

Ady Ruchiatan,
Managing Director,

	Gim Logo

“We needed freshness, we got it in a flash. Airbus’ reliability in collecting timely, on spec, and on quality, has been outstanding. More than a provider, they are a true partner.”
