In conjunction with our valued partner, NTT DATA, we are proud to offer 2.5-meter/5-meter (m) AW3D Standard DEM products from an archive covering more than 80% of the world. As an added bonus, you are able to search for AW3D Standard in Image Hunter, making this DEM fast to query, order and deliver.

Produced from an archive of more than 3 million ALOS stereo images, AW3D Standard can be delivered as either a digital surface model (DSM) or a digital terrain model (DTM) at 2.5-m and 5-m resolutions. With average delivery times of 2 weeks or less for a DSM (or 4 weeks for a DTM), AW3D is an excellent choice for regional projects requiring quick turnarounds on high-resolution DEM data.

Here is a summary of the current AW3D Standard specifications which will be updated in the coming months when more testing is completed on the new 2.5-m DEM offering:
