What is WorldDEMTM?

What is WorldDEM4Ortho?

WorldDEM4Ortho is a 24m elevation information layer optimised for the orthorectification of high-resolution (HR) and very high resolution (VHR) optical satellite imagery. WorldDEM4Ortho is the most consistent, homogenous and accurate elevation model for high-quality image orthorectification on a global scale.

Global access* to WorldDEM and WorldDEM4Ortho

The WorldDEM Streaming service provides access to the global WorldDEM database via two protocols. These protocols include WMTS for free unlimited access to relief map viewing and WCS for accessing the data in full resolution. A weblink for WorldDEM Streaming is provided upon order receipt allowing direct connection to your GIS. API integration into own applications is possible. The consumption can be monitored and tracked online. There is no minimum Area of Interest (AOI) size for streaming, allowing you to exactly define individual AOIs. Once an AOI has been streamed, it can be used multiple times (only pay once for same area). This offer comes with a yearly subscription model. Several subscription ‘Packages’ are available suiting to your needs starting at €2,500/year (625km² of WorldDEM or 2,000km² of WorldDEM4Ortho, or a combination of the two).
